A few years ago the Windsor Square Association, observing that the open
park-like settings of our homes could only go so far in promoting neighbor-to-neighbor
communication, established a block captain program. Currently 66 of the
71 blocks in Windsor Square participate.
The primary role of the Windsor Square block captains is communication.
At least once a month the Neighbor’s Committee tries to send out
an update containing useful information about WSA activities and what’s
going on in Windsor Square in general – with the expectation that
the block captains will convey it to their neighbors. And as issues and
questions need to be brought to our organization’s attention, our
hope is that the block captains will provide residents with easy access.
Does your block have a block captain? You can find out by emailing us
Make sure you include your complete address, especially whether your block
is a north or south block.
Like similar programs in other neighborhoods, security is also a component
of what our block captains do, Block captains are now asked to report
any incident in their area to the Windsor Square Association at
so that this information can be circulated to the block captain network.
We also copy the LAPD and the Council Office. In this way the neighborhood
is kept informed and a record is generated.
Because there is a danger of misinformation and duplicate information
being circulated, we ask that these crime reports flow back to the community
through the block captains. However, if anybody has something they wish
to report directly they can do so by e-mailing us at .
Remember to list the time and date of the incident and any significant
ALSO REMEMBER – REPORTING A CRIME TO US IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE
FOR REPORTING IT TO THE LAPD!!!
