It is important to have active members on each street in the form of a Block Captain for safety, security and emergency preparedness. Block Captains are needed for most blocks in the neighborhood. For information on becoming a Block Captain contact Steve Wallace at stevew@marvista.org.

Responsibilities of a Block Captain Include:

• Serving as a liaison between the block residents and the Police Department and neighborhood association as well as distributing newsletters, crime prevention and Association news.

• Maintain a map and list of neighbors, including names, addresses, phone numbers and vehicle information.

• Alert neighbors in the event of crime or an emergency situation which could require an area evacuation.

• Greet new neighbors and educate them on the community watch and the neighborhood.

• Co-ordinate and host an initial block meeting and then at least one yearly block meeting.

If you are interested in becoming a Block Captain or starting a Neighborhood Watch Committee on your block contact our LAPD Lead Officer: Hector Aceves at 35717@lapd.lacity.org.
