BE A BLOCK CAPTAIN
Block Captains are the heart of HNA. They are the leaders of their Neighborhood Watch groups. They set up neighborhood meet ups; listen to neighborhood concerns and issues; work closely with their HNA Board Representatives and the Hayward Police Department; and attend community meetings or Block Captain round-tables held periodically throughout the year, keeping themselves informed and passing information along to their neighbors.
