Botany residents feel safe and criminals beware. You are being watched!!! C.H.B.D has brought back the Block Watch Program. Our Block Watch Program is an extra set of eyes in Botany at the times when they are most needed. Block Watch Ambassadors are not the police although they do work closely with the Clifton police Department. If you need them, feel free to stop them when they are on their rounds. They are happy to assist you in any way possible . Of course in an emergency or if you see a crime being committed or something looks suspicious, dial 911.

Welcome back Block Watch!
