The Block Watch Program is being relaunched in Greenpoint, and if you would like to join the program here’s how:
Contact Police Officer Steve Truglio of the 94th Precinct at (718) 383 – 5298 and tell him that you would like to join the Block Watch Program.
The program covers a training course and assigns the volunteer a Block Watch ID number.
This is not a block watch in the literal sense, where you are obligated to walk around your block looking over your shoulder for a straight number of hours. Should you happen to see anything suspicious happening at the very moment you are leaving your house for work, or going on about your daily business, etc., there will be a number for you to call.
All your information is confidential should you wish to join, and the training will teach you how to properly handle a situation should you be there to witness it. It is encouraged to spread the word for home owners, business owners, renters, anyone who is worried about safety in Greenpoint, to get involved because as a community we can make Greenpoint safer.

So, if I’m reading this correctly, I should call PO Steve and ask that he join the Block Watch Program, right?
Who needs a neighborhood watch when you have citizen’s arrest?
Well, if you went to the meeting, everyone WANTED this block watch program to be re-launched! My neighbors had their house broken into 3 weeks ago, so yeah this is great! 😀
