A Connected Community is

A Protected Community

BlockWatch is a visionary organization dedicated to enhancing community well-being through innovative technology. We are committed to situational awareness and crime prevention, making safety our utmost priority. Our mobile app empowers communities to stay vigilant and connected, ensuring a safer, more secure environment. Join us in our mission for a better, safer tomorrow.


How Does It Work?

Suppose you notice a suspicious-looking person with a large bag walking towards a school or a mall.

Now imagine you had a mobile app that allowed you, within seconds, to raise an alert. Everyone watching that area will receive this alert and will be able to confirm it. Check out How To BlockWatch.



With BlockWatch, our goal is to protect families no matter where they live by either taking cover away from an active crime area or steering away altogether from potential crime scene.

With our family plan you can watch and get alerts from multiple locations such as your child’s daycare, high school, university, church, or your favorite mall you are planning to visit later in the day.
