Neighborhood Block Watch

Several streets in North Avondale have formed block watch organizations to help the police better serve our community.  If you are interested in volunteering, forming or learning more about a block watch group I your area please use the NANA “Contact Us” form to request a block watch captain contact you with information.

A street captain gathers and documents contact information for neighbors on their street to facilitate communication among neighbors for special events (e.g., block parties), crime prevention concerns (e.g., watching neighbors houses while their away, reporting suspicious behavior), or in the event of an emergency.

If your street is not listed and you would like to be a street captain or a participant, please contact Carolyn at .

We currently have Street Captains for the following:

Ardmore ▪ Avon Fields Ave ▪ Avon Fields Ln ▪ Avondale Ave ▪ Beechwood ▪ Betula ▪ Burton Woods ▪ Clinton Springs ▪Eaton ▪ Lenox ▪ Leyman ▪ Redway ▪ Red Bud Ave ▪ Red Bud Pl ▪ Rose Hill ▪ Spring House Ln ▪ Winding Way

Pending Streets:

Dickson ▪ Glencross ▪ Lowry ▪ Parker ▪ Revel ▪ Sturgis ▪ Wedgewood


Additional Safety & Health Resources

 Citizens on Patrol

One of the most proven methods to keep the criminals from owning the street is for neighbors to band together as Citizens on Patrol.  This helps to make the neighborhood more active outdoors and makes our streets less attractive to the criminals.   Participants are required to complete basic class with twelve hours of class training and an 8 hour ride-a-long with a police officer and attend additional ongoing training throughout the year.

Community Driven Crime Control (CDCC)

Empowered neighborhoods are those that have a greater sense of control over crime and disorder than their peers. These are neighborhoods whose challenges are achieving diversity, stability and economic growth which can only be achieved by a community-driven approach, (i.e.., through self-help).
