Meet and Greet

The Wauwatosa Neighborhood Watch Committee and the Wauwatosa Police Department are hosting multiple events for Tosa’s Night Out this year. To show our support for the WPD and the Block Watch program, the Pabst Park Neighborhood Association is promoting a Meet and Greet on Sunday, July 31st. We encourage neighbors to pop outside at 7:31pm on 7/31 to make connections with the neighbors on your block. It can be as simple as introducing yourself to neighbors you haven’t met or checking in with your block watch captain*. If you are not sure who your block watch captain is, please email me, and I can get that information to you. One block is considering serving root beer floats to encourage participation!

*Even if you are not interested in joining the Pabst Park Neighborhood Association, please consider registering your contact information with your Block Watch Captain to receive safety updates from the Wauwatosa Police Department.

Tosa’s Night Out

Tosa’s Night Out will have a new focus this year. The WPD would like to bring the festivities to each neighborhood in Tosa by encouraging localized Block Parties in addition to the celebration at the Milwaukee County Zoo on Wednesday, August 3rd. We already hosted our neighborhood block party, but we can try a simple way to connect and show our support that weekend. On July 31st at 7:31pm, we ask that everyone take a few minutes to come outside and meet the neighbors on your block. We hope to have our Block Watch Captains out to greet you as well. If you want to be included in our WPD and Safety Liaison email updates, you could give your contact information to your BW Captain at this time. Come on out and show your support for the WPD and the Block Watch Program.  You can register here, for Tosa’s Night Out at the zoo.

Wauwatosa Neighborhood Block Watch Program
The Wauwatosa Neighborhood Block Watch Program is a proven crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of citizens, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce residential crime. The Neighborhood Watch has three main goals:
(1) Neighbors getting to know each other and working together in a program of mutual assistance
(2) Citizens learning how to recognize and report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods
(3) People using proven crime prevention techniques like Operation I.D., “target hardening”, and lighting – landscaping and locking principles.
