The Village, in conjunction with the Wood County Sheriff's Department and the National Neighborhood Watch Institute, has formed an area Block Watch to look after area children and each other.  

If you are interested in becoming a member of our program, please fill out the Block Watch Application and return it to:


Wood County Sheriff's Department
Attn:  Deputy Greg Johns
1960 E. Gypsy Lane Road
Bowling Green, Ohio   43402


All participants will go through a background check and if approved, 
you will receive a Block Watch window cling and/or sign for your yard which 
will identify your home as safe for children.  All participants and signs will be 
registered with the Wood County Sheriff's Department.
