Bevo’s Neighborhood Ownership Model (NOM)
The Neighborhood Ownership Model (NOM) is a collaborative effort among active citizens within the neighborhood, the Circuit Attorney’s Office and STL Police Department. We welcome and are seeking participants. Please feel free to inquire about any of the programs below:
Neighborhood Watch Volunteers are looking out for neighborhood safety concerns. They will report on blocked alleys, broken windows, abandoned vehicles, dumping, or any other situation that could be a safety or health concern for neighborhood residents.
One of the greatest benefits of the COP program is the building of community. While on patrol, neighbors will have the opportunity to meet other neighborhood residents and build relationships with other volunteers. Patrols can be done in many ways; a car pool, a group walk, a bike brigade, neighborhood dog owners walkers coalition. The choice is up to the volunteers.
If you are interested in finding out more about our COP program contact: James McQueen - Zoomie2001@gmail.com.
Victims and witnesses of crime are a powerful tool in the criminal justice system. Cooperation and court appearances can support better prosecution of criminals. Residents - in partnership with the prosecutor on the case - give Impact Statements to the Court outlining the impact a particular crime and/or incident has had on the neighborhood.
Victim Support volunteers are trained to provide emotional support to crime victims in the Bevo neighborhood, to help facilitate access to the assistance and services necessary to speed their recovery from the criminal act, and to support and aid them as they move through the criminal justice process.

We would love to see a Block Captain on every Bevo block to enhance the lines of communication between residents. It’s a pleasant and easy way to help your neighborhood.
