Safety Tips

See the following safety page for safety tips.

Interview with a burglar about Break and Enters:

Basic Crime Definitions

Robbery: When someone does or tries to steal your property AND assaults or threatens to assault you. ie. A street mugging or a theft from a store where a weapon was shown. Two examples of thefts mislabelled as robberies are finding your house broken into (a Break and Enter) or shoplifting (Theft Under).

Break and Enter: Unauthorized entry into your home/business, closed garage, shed or fully fenced/gated yard and steals or attempts to steal property. Breaking into your car is not a break and enter, just a Theft From Vehicle.

Police Online Crime Reporting Forms

If you see a crime-in-progress, phone 9-1-1. If you discover a crime and the criminal is likely long gone you could use your police service's online crime reporting forms to make a report. No crime is too small, report everything. Certain major crimes such as assault, robbery, break and enter, etc. will require police to attend and cannot be done online or over the phone.

Neighbourhood Signs and Stickers

On multiple occasions people have asked about how to get signs and window stickers. You must contact your local police service directly for this information. Neighbourhood Protect has no sign/sticker program. Also, most police services require around 50% neighbour sign-up before they will endorse your watch. So, before contacting the police, you need to actually build a functioning neighbourhood watch.


Questions/comments can be directed to admin@neighbourhoodprotect.ca. If you live outside of Canada and would like this tool for your area send an email to discuss.

- a Facebook page has been set up in the event that this website becomes unvailable due to technical issues which may happen on very rare occassions. Website status updates will be posted on FB then.
