Virtual Block Watch
The Virtual Block Watch (VBW) program is a web-based, volunteer-driven, two-way communication tool that effectively uses email to relay important information about street closures, criminal activity and other topics relevant to Downtown. DC and the Cincinnati Police Department introduced the VBW program in September 2003, which takes the Sector Group meetings to a new level. Web-based VBW membership now allows DC to communicate immediately with volunteers. The system passed its first test with flying colors when a thief was captured within hours after his image—caught on a security camera—was posted on the website. To date, more than 1,000 volunteers have joined the VBW program.
