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.
If you see a crime-in-progress, phone 9-1-1. If you suspect criminal activity (ie. drug dealing, prostitution, etc.) in your neighbourhood
and wish to report it anonymously then you can use Crime Stoppers. No crime is too small, report everything.

Information collected on this website is for the purpose of administrating neighbourhood watches and may be shared with police services to assist in their investigations. Personal contact information will not be shared with any non-police organizations. General aggregate information may be used to provide stats to public organizations.
There is a variety of hardware such as web hosting, communication lines and power generation that could potentially affect the availability of this website that goes beyond the control of the administrator. As such, there is only up to a 99% guarantee of uptime.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you live outside of Canada
and would like this tool for your area send an email to discuss.
