The Eastham Neighborhood Watch, founded in 2004, is seeking new volunteers. The group functions as "additional eyes and ears", assisting the Eastham Police Department by reporting suspicious activity in town. The group is part of a triad made up of the Eastham Council on Aging, the Eastham Police Department and the Eastham Fire Department.
The town is divided into eight regions with 93 block captains. Block captains are year-round Eastham residents. New block captains are needed to assist in covering additional areas in town. Volunteers must be year-round residents and must pass a CORI check before joining this very active watch group.
Anyone interested in volunteering should call the Eastham Council on Aging at 508-255-6164 or leave a message for Officer Josh Adams with Eastham police dispatch at 508-255-0551.
