Neighbourhood Watch :: What Can You Do?

What Can You Do?

Reporting Suspicious Activity

One of the pillars of community safety and in particular the Neighbourhood Watch Program involves reporting suspicious activity to the police and then sharing that information with your neighbours.

By being aware of criminal activity in your neighbourhood, you can take precautions to protect yourself and your home, while making your community an unattractive target for criminals.

More importantly, by being the "eyes and ears" of the police in the community, you can play a crucial role in supporting the Blue Mountains OPP to keep The Town of The Blue Mountains one of Canada's safest areas.

EMERGENCY

Situations are often dangerous, arise suddenly, and call for prompt action. 9-1-1 should be called in all emergency situations.

When you call 9-1-1, you may be asked to repeat the information. This is to ensure that the information received is correct and to determine the amount of emergency equipment needed. At the same time you are relaying the information, equipment is being dispatched to the scene.

INCIDENTS

Are of secondary importance and usually a limited occurrence of trouble. An incident may have happened while you were away from your home, and no life-threatening situation exists. Incidents should be reported to The Blue Mountains OPP using the regular police phone number 1-888-310-1122 or 519-599-6644.

When incidents in our neighbourhoods are reported, the police have better knowledge about our neighbourhood, and where to assign resources and special units.
