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 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you include your complete address, especially whether your block is a north or south block.
Like similar programs in other neighborhoods, security (see Safety & Security) is also a component of what our block captains do. Block captains are asked to report any incident in their area to the Windsor Square Association at email@example.com 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 completing the contact form on our website.
Remember to list the time and date of the incident and any significant descriptions.
ALSO REMEMBER – REPORTING A CRIME TO US IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR REPORTING IT TO THE LAPD!!!
