Training Location: Sykesville, MD
The training improves Neighborhood Watch activities by providing formal training for law enforcement, Block Captains, and community volunteers. The Toolkit provides information and training on a wide variety of public and community safety-based topics, including volunteer management, partnerships and conducting effective meetings. In addition there are specialized presentations for Area Coordinators and Block Captains, and informative community-based presentations that are supplemented by numerous action-oriented Neighborhood Watch tools. The tools, templates and forms can be easily replicated or tailored to meet the individual needs of a local Neighborhood Watch organization.
The training provides an overview to the curriculum and tools contained in the Toolkit. It is applicable for all levels of Neighborhood Watch experience. The class is a Train-the-Trainer format. It is recommended one representative from a law enforcement agency attend, then take back the information to other officers.
