High Speed Internet

CRIME WATCH PROGRAM

CRIME NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

KANNATA VALLEY

This letter is to inform residents of the Crime Neighbourhood Watch program in Kannata Valley and its objective.  We invite you to participate in this program.

Crime Neighbourhood Watch is a program aimed at reducing crime in the community.  It involves getting to know one’s neighbours and introducing them to the concept of Neighbourhood Watch – that is, good neighbours working together, alert to the potential of crime and willing to look out for one another’s interests.  Neighbours working together through Neighbourhood Watch can combat crime in their area the most effective way before it starts.  The program will also help to co-ordinate the efforts of the police and the community in tracking down criminals.

Our objective is: to provide a means of reducing the opportunity for crime to occur, through the active participation of residents in crime prevention.

Strong community involvement is encouraged because neighbourhood unity can deter crime.  Neighbours joined together do help correct situations that threaten their peace and safety. This program is designed to help create a secure environment for your family, home and property.

Crime Neighbourhood Watch Committee

Kannata Valley is divided into five zones with one captain and assistant for each zone and overseen by a co-ordinator.  When a crime occurs in one zone we ask that the residents first notify the RCMP, then notify their zone captain or assistant who in turn will notify the co-ordinator. The co-ordinator will then notify the remaining captains and assistants.  All the captains and assistants will notify the residents. This procedure ensures the entire village will be on the alert.

New residents to Kannata Valley are asked to contact the captain or assistant their address comes under.   The captain or assistant will then provide information on how to make their homes less inviting as a target for thieves; how to participate in Operation Identification;  making their personal property less desirable to burglars; how to be alert to suspicious activity in their neighbourhood; and what to do when homes will be unattended for any length of time.

Together with your help we will try to keep this community safe.

Please keep the attached information close at hand and notify your captain or assistant along with the RCMP should a problem arise.

Good afternoon,

As a result of discussions held at the meeting on March 27, 2019, please find attached information regarding the new Sask Crime Watch Advisory Network.  You are invited to upload the document to your website and post it in your offices to promote this new initiative.

When the RCMP detachment becomes aware of an incident or crime, an advisory can be issued via this system and local residents who have signed up for the program will become aware of what has happened.  We want rural residents to feel safe in our communities.  By receiving advisories and reporting crimes or suspicious activities, residents can help foster resilient hometowns that actively prevent crime, enhancing public safety.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Lumsden RCMP at (306) 731-4270.

Regards,

Lumsden RCMP
