Are you interested in starting a neighborhood blockwatch?
The Kent Police Department is hosting a city wide informational meeting on the benefits of starting and maintaining a neighborhood block watch.
Neighborhood Block Watch 101
Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Kent City Hall Council Chambers
• interested in starting a neighborhood block watch
• interested in re-starting an already formed block watch
• needing a refresher on maintaining a neighborhood block watch
• interested in hearing from other block watch captains and what has worked and what hasn’t
• interested in hearing about Kent crime trends and what residents can do to help prevent crime in their neighborhoods
What You Can Do Ahead of Time:
