National Night Out
The Short North Civic Association and the Italian Village Society have created the Short North Block Watch – a web-based community engagement resource to share information in order to keep our neighborhoods safe. The Short North is comprised of various neighborhood that are very closely aligned. What affects one neighborhood often affects other Short North neighborhoods. It was determined that a joint block watch was the best way to serve the Short North area. We recognize the individuality of each neighborhood and the existing block watches that are participating in this collaboration. In order to make sure that your autonomy and voices are heard at a neighborhood-based level, each neighborhood block watch will have an individual email address. Any information that pertains to a particular neighborhood can be shared through the individual neighborhood block watch email addresses. This collaboration will allow all of us to share information more easily across neighborhood lines and be recognized as a larger entity.
We All Have the Power to Help
Know Your Neighbors
Neighbors who are an integrated part of the community look out for each other.
NEIGHBORS ARE OUR ALLIES
Introduce yourself to your neighbors next time you see them, host a block party, or, even better, become an active member of one of our local Short North community groups!
Keep Your Eyes Open
Being aware of potentially unsafe situations can help prevent crime.
BE AWARE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND YOU
Watch for suspicious behavior, avoid potentially risky situations, and maintain properties to make it harder for criminals to act.
Report Suspicious Behavior
Reporting suspicious behavior to neighbors and the police makes criminals less likely to strike.
CALL THE POLICE IF YOU SEE SOMETHING
Call 911 in case of emergency. Call 311 or the police non-emergency line (614.645.4545) to report suspicious behavior, graffiti, illegally parked cars, noise complaints, etc.
