This worthwhile program has been in effect in Wauwatosa in our residential neighborhoods since the early 1980’s and in full force in the Village Business District for a couple years now. Time after time this program has helped prevent crime and aided greatly in solving those crimes that are committed. This is an opportunity for Tosa East Towne to join in on an already established program that creates community bonding and a safe business district that promotes Wauwatosa as a great City in which to live, work and do business.
What do we need to get started? One or two business people from every block or two to act as Captains. The Captains would gather contact information for the businesses, distribute our quarterly newsletter to the businesses on their watch and hopefully institute and maintain a phone tree for communicating things of an urgent nature.
