How is a Neighborhood Watch organized?

A Neighborhood Watch typically consists of the Police Liaison, a Coordinator, Block Captains, and Watch members, but the program can be customized to meet the specific needs of the neighborhood. Regardless, the success of Neighborhood Watch depends on each group and/or member to be alert and communicate with each other.

 The Police Liaison is a Zionsville Police Department member assigned to the Neighborhood Watch Program.

 The Coordinator is a neighborhood member who serves as the liaison between the neighborhood and the police department. The Coordinator is also responsible for the sharing of information with the Block Captains.

 Block Captains communicate with the watch members who live on their respective blocks or areas.

 Watch members live in the neighborhood and make a commitment to remain aware and vigilant of suspicious and possible criminal activity. Watch members serve as the “eyes and ears” of the Neighborhood Watch.
