Website News Alert


2023.05.30: Residents of a GTA community recently completed a survey and concluded Residents not happy with action on neighbourhood crime. You can`t just wait for the police to do everything, people must also be proactive about crime in their neighbourhood and help the police. One way of doing this is neighbourhood watch.

Speakers Corner: Car theft victim says calls to police were ignored. When you report a crime and personally do not have video, then the police must physically canvas your neighbours for video. If they are not home and there is also no contact information for them, then the police must repeatedly return until they make contact, which is extremely time consuming and police might not have time for. Being proactive and having a neighbourhood watch allows police to see what members have cameras and provides them with contact information so they can arrange for video. Some of this responsibility now falls on citizens to help the police.

Safety Tips

See the following safety page for safety tips.

Home security cameras: Check with your municipality if there are any by-laws. If not, then it is recommended that any backyard cameras do not point into your neighbours yard - just aim your cameras more into your yard and closer to the ground. On the street there is no expectation of privacy. Smartphone cameras, Google Maps, Google Street View and dashcams are everywhere so, adding security cameras is not much different. Try to cover out to the street for perpetrators that come by vehicle. Discuss with your neighbours if they would like you to cover a portion of their front lawn to help with their security. Be a good neighbour and respect their wishes when it comes to their property.

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.
