Neighbourhood Watch is simply a program of neighbours watching each other’s properties at times when crimes are likely to occur. A police officer patrolling your community may not recognize a stranger in your yard — but your neighbours probably would.
One of the first steps to preventing crime in our community is to be aware of what is happening, inform each other about it, more easily recognize suspicious or criminal activity when we see it and most importantly, report it.
Neighbourhood Watch programs work through mutual aid — neighbours watching out for neighbours. There are several neighbourhood watch programs operating across 22 Division.
