Block Club Meeting Idea – Walk and Talk

By KALI PLIEGO

Crime Prevention Specialists around the city are seeing a new trend in block club meetings. Block club members are preferring to take the meeting on the move, literally. Going on a walk together is a great way to provide a positive presence on your streets and alleys, in addition to moving your bodies and digging in to block issues through conversation. Level up by inviting your Crime Prevention Specialist to come along! They can lead a discussion on CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design), and help you come up with simple ways to apply the concepts to yards, garages, porches, even problem areas that have been difficult to solve! Crime Prevention Specialists can also educate your block club on a wide array of prevention tips, from personal safety to home and business security, theft prevention and more. To find your Crime Prevention Specialist, visit the city webpage. All services are free. https://www.minneapolismn.gov/government/departments/police/cps/
