“Most block watches fizzle out due to lack of interest or complacency,” said Erik Anderson, owner of Erik’s Clothing & Culture on West Market Street. “But I think we are building enough synergy down here, between all the new stores and restaurants, that we can actually keep something like this going.”
Block watch members actively coordinate activities with Sandusky police, including officers:
• Informing members how to spot criminal activity.
• Teaching members self-defense tactics to thwart away attackers.
• Scheduling regular foot patrols throughout downtown to create a better relationship between with the community.
