A resident of the Terrabrook and Stoneybrook subdivisions has requested the HOA board to assist in organizing a neighborhood watch. Please visit CMPDs website for more information on the Neighborhood Watch program and the duties of those individuals invovled.
In order to begin this process, volunteers are needed to act as Block Captains. A Block Captain’s responsibilities in general are:
1. Attend meetings with CMPD to fully explain roles and meet chairperson(s) and other Block Captains. Block Captains are assigned before first neighborhood watch meeting so roles are established.
2. Block Captains are responsible for asking 10 houses on streets near them to participate in the neighborhood watch program. CMPD has advised that participation goes up when things are separated into more manageable units.
3. Collect participant signatures and information including names and contact information. This information is to be kept private. CMPD will provide information regarding crime issues.
4. There is at least one neighborhood watch meeting each year to discuss neighborhood issues, crime stats, and answer questions.
5. Block Captains receive non-emergency concerns and information from participants and provide that information to the Chairperson who will notify CMPD Community Coordinator.
6. Block Captains disseminate information relayed to the Chairperson by CMPD to the households that they are responsible for.
7. Greet new neighbors, educate, and encourage participation in neighborhood watch.
8. Block Captains will serve on the Steering Committee. One chairpersons is to be selected by vote from other block captains. which determines concerns, designs programs to address concerns, sets goals, and increase communication in neighborhood.
The neighborhood watch will be organized with the assistance of a CMPD Community Coordinator. Any individual whom is interested in volunteering to be a Block Captain please email your contact information to Ruth Jacquot, Vice President at RFJacquot@yahoo.com.
(A Neighborhood Watch can only be formed if there are individuals in the community of the Terrabrook and Stoneybrook subdivisions who are interested in volunteering. The HOA Board is solely providing assistance in the organizing of this group).
