MY SILVER CREEK

Keep it Safe 

 

 

WELCOME

 

As the Neighbourhood Watch Program Coordinator, I would like to welcome you to our complex.  I hope you will love it here.

 

This complex has a Neighbourhood Watch Program in effect since February 2, 2005.

 

What is a Neighbourhood Watch?

 

It is a joint program of Safe City Mississauga (formerly MCPA) and  Peel Regional Police.

 

What does it mean?

It means that we all should actively protect each other’s homes, watching for suspicious persons and activities in our area and deterring many would-be-burglars and vandals.

 

Who is the Coordinator?

For the time being, I am the Coordinator of this Program and this means I am the link between our community and Safe City Mississauga/Peel Regional Police.  If you have any questions, ideas or concerns regarding safety around our complex, please drop me a line: mysilvercreek@gmail.com.  It is important for me to have your email address because I have to keep you in the loop regarding crime statistics, safety and community events.

 

More information

Once you move to this complex, I'll try my best to meet you personally, as soon as possible.  I will provide you with written material and NW decals.  It is important that you put these decals on your front and backyard doors.  It is one more thing to remind would-be-burglars that someone is watching and will call the police.

It all began with this evening, on February 2nd, 2005, when 30 residents did attend the Seminar for the set-up of our Neighbourhood Watch

 

To you, Cst. Sean Piper and Grant Clark, a very special thank you, for your support and dedication

 

 

 

MCPA-Neighbourhood Watch

 

"Learn to recognize normal and abnormal activity in your neighbourhood and learn the appropriate way to work with Peel Regional Police and how to report suspicious and criminal activity."

 

We can make a difference!

 

Neighbourhood Watch is a program aimed at reducing crime in our community.  It involves getting to know our neighbours and it can be summarized as neighbours watching out for neighbours and preventing crime at a local level.

 

Crime prevention is not up to the police only.  We all need to participate to prevent crime.  We can deter crime if we are all united and this kind of program is for sure the best way to combat crime before it even starts.

 

Get to know the neighbours around you.   Get involved!  By knowing your neighbours you will recognize when someone or something is suspicious.  It's easy to get involved and it doesn't cost a thing.  If we  watch out for each other, we can make this neighbourhood a safe place and keep it safe.
