Block Captains







Why We Have Block Captains
We have a safe neighborhood—crime stats prove that. We have a beautiful neighborhood—visitors tell us that.
Block Captains help keep our neighborhood safe and beautiful, and serve as our information network.
No job in the neighborhood is more important than that of the BLOCK CAPTAIN. It is the communication network, without whom no news—good or bad—can be disseminated.
Ideally, there should be one Block Captain for every ten to fifteen houses within the neighborhood.
