Get Involved - Block Watch

The Block Watch program is perfect for those who want to be actively involved in public safety but have limited time. There are no special tasks or big responsibilities. Participants just have to commit to becoming more connected to their neighbourhood and sharing information with their Block Watch group and the Coquitlam RCMP. Block Watchers can be owners or renters and can live in any type of home from a single-family dwelling to a high-rise apartment. According to Block Watch volunteers, the best reasons to be part of the program include:

  • Increased feelings of safety and security due to a stronger connection with neighbours and sense of “owning” your community.
  • Opportunities for training and information sharing with the Coquitlam RCMP.
  • Access to Block Watch resources to help protect your friends, family and property against criminal activity.

With almost 7,000 participants, the Coquitlam RCMP Block Watch program is a great asset to police an important part of our efforts to create safe, secure neighbourhoods with the help of informed, involved citizens.
