About Your Blockwatch
The blockwatch program is an organized network of Berwyn East residents exchanging ideas and information with their neighbors and local law enforcement to prevent crime.
Through blockwatch meetings and training sessions, residents learn how to become the extended eyes and ears of the police. They learn how to report suspicious or unusual activity in their neighborhoods, helping police to fight crime.
Compromised of nearly 3,000 households, our blockwatch requires significant volunteerism and coordination. For ease of management, the Berwyn East community is divided into 5 zones.
Report all suspicious or unusual activity, no matter the size....
Activity reported and not reported to CPD, is tracked by our blockwatch team in order to notify residents trends and specific areas of crime. It is also used to follow-up with our community leaders and local law enforcement, initiating subsequent action.
Reporting "minor" activities will create a greater sense of community and put the "neighbor" back in neighborhood.
