The ultimate success of Block Watch depends largely on a commitment to cooperate between area residents, the RCMP — and more importantly, between residents themselves. It also helps to promote community awareness and community pride. Block Watch encourages active participation in crime prevention. Captains and co-captains are needed for each of the 42 "Blocks" in Lions Bay.
