Neighbourhood Watch

Just a reminder to the public to be diligent with their known environments and call police with any suspicious behaviour that is “out of the norm”.

Peterborough Police receive daily reports of theft from vehicles throughout all areas of the city.  These events can lead to police discovering other crimes such as break and enter and prowl by night.

  • Know your neighbourhood – if you trust your neighbours, allow them to know if you are going to be away from your residence for an extended period of time.  Conversely, if you know your neighbour is at work and someone is suspiciously walking around the property, call police.
  • Trust you instinct – if you see a stranger picking up a UPS parcel that has been dropped off on your neighbour’s door step while your neighbour is at work, call police.
  • Help Police Identify these person(s) – with almost every person owning a smart phone, take a photo of the person, their vehicle (especially the license plate), and call police.

A healthy community relationship is a good relationship to a safe community.
