Working together to make positive neighborhood change is the crux of our mission. Town Watch groups have historically built partnerships with district police to be their "Eyes and Ears", assisting in crime prevention and reporting.
Community engagement and support have been added to bridge the gap between crime prevention and community accountability. Through the facilitation of discussion and planning about the entire range of community issues, trained staff is deployed into neighborhoods based on need, to identify and work with the local leaders. Organized blocks are the basis for healthy neighborhoods. People talking to each other, working together, and caring for each other is the only way things get done.
The overall responsibility of Town Watch groups is to Observe, Document, and Report . Community Support staff assist in the Identifying, Prioritizing, and Implementation of community objectives and the development of action plans to facilitate change.
Drexel Hill Town Watch (DHTW) was created by over 40 Block Captains who made a decision to keep their community safe. Our numbers are growing. Please explore this web site and if you have any questions please just ask....
