Team Block Watch – Community Living


BW3

Block Watch is a free program based on a partnership between the New Westminster Police Department and its community members who work together to prevent crime in their neighbourhoods. Neighbours watch out for one another and their property and report suspicious activities to the Police. It is believed that neighbours working together are the first and best line of defence against crime.

In May 2014 – it was decided that we wanted to bring our small community of New Westminster together and we formed our TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More.

We also wanted to keep the folks informed on  how to recognize and report suspicious behavior in the neighbourhood – so this Holiday Season we had our 1st Annual Meet & Greet Block Watch Social.

As it turns out – it was a success, we had a full room, pot luck with door prizes and it was requested that we wanted to #PayItForward by giving back to our community and support our local food bank. Together we collected $145.00 plus a nice size hamper full of goodies.

Our TEAM at Block Watch – would like to thank our generous sponsors for our door prizes for this event.

  • Steve Elson – Police Coordinator at Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers
  • Jenniffer Sanford – Crime Prevention Services – NWPD
  • Steve Kasper – Your Friendly Realtor – REMAX – New Westminster
  • Gino’s Restaurant – Our favorite Greek & Pizza restaurant – New Westminster
  • Fraser Works Employment Services – New Westminster
  • David Eddy – Vancouver Native Housing
  • Al Lindenbach – New Westminster
  • All residents that donated door prizes / food or $$$ for our local food bank crime
