The Block Watch program in Lillooet has turned 3 years old!

Established in November of 2020, the Lillooet Block Watch program (operated under the Block Watch Society of BC) currently has 1 neighbourhood under it's wing.

The Block Watch program encourages a proactive approach to crime prevention and safety. Volunteers learn how to recognize suspicious activity and when to report a crime to police. 

Block Watch Society of BC:

"Block Watch is a very successful crime prevention program, designed to keep neighbourhoods safer. When municipalities and police form partnerships with their communities and employ the Block Watch program, it reduces residential crime, provides a stronger sense of safety for everyone and helps build stronger and connected communities (from Block Watch Society of BC's website)". 

Lillooet-Lytton RCMP's partnership:

Lillooet-Lytton RCMP provide generalized property crime mapping to Block Watch members on a monthly basis, keeping members informed about local crime reports. The mutual partnership fosters community engagement and encourages formal reporting for any crimes or suspicious activity observed. 

For more information on the Block Watch program and joining, please reach out directly to blockwatch@lillooet.ca
