The Police Department knows that close-knit neighborhoods are safer and would like to encourage you to be the one to make a difference in your neighborhood. Promote a sense of community in your neighborhood by starting a Neighborhood Block Club. A Neighborhood Block Club is a group of neighbors that agree to meet twice a year, watch out for each other and the neighborhood's children and work with the Police to prevent crime.
The Police Department supports your efforts by remaining in contact with your group by:
- Attending your meetings
- Sending out the Moorhead Beat
- Providing training to block clubs on topics of interest to them
Contact our Community Policing Coordinatoror call 218.299.5143 to get you started or to find out if there is a Neighborhood Block Club in your neighborhood.
A free private social network for your neighborhood.
