In the City of Post Falls we have neighbors who come together to form a Block Watch group in their neighborhood. These groups play a vital role in crime prevention in Post Falls.
Being part of a Block Watch is not like it was in the past. It does not require a daily walk through your neighborhood. We encourage you to socialize with your neighbors and get to know a bit about them and the vehicles that are usually at their home. If you know your neighbors and their habits, if you see something out of the ordinary you can call the police. Block Watch groups have been proven to help prevent crime and help catch criminals.
Block Watch groups are fun! You can have block parties in the summer, barbeque and make friends! In each Block Watch group we have, we need a Captain that we at the department here can keep in touch with and send information to, that you the neighbors might need to know about.
On the home page there is a link that says PFPD Email Dispatch. You can click there and sign up for email updates from the Police Department regarding whatever topics you desire. You can sign up for Block Watch updates and receive crime information, quarterly newsletters and any other information that we need to get out to you.
We have just started having a Block Watch Captain's meeting twice a year. This is useful to the Captain's and the Department to hear what is going on in each neighborhood and keep in contact with our Block Watch Captains.
We can set up a meeting with all of your neighbors who are interested in starting a Block Watch group. We can have the meeting here at the Police Department or at a home in your neighborhood. If you are interested in starting a Block Watch call the Post Falls Police department at 773-3517 for more information.
