Being a member of Neighbourhood Watch is a
rewarding experience. Meet your neighbours, get
some exercise, and get to know your neighbourhood.
Experience the satisfaction of giving something back
to the area where you live.
We observe, record and report any unusual activity -
we are not expected to act as police officers. If at
anytime personal safety or property damage is a
concern, the RCMP is called.
Every Friday and Saturday night, volunteers pair up
to patrol the Westwind streets and Westwind
Elementary School. Since the late eighties, these
walkers have been a visible presence in the
neighbourhood and have proven to have a deterrent
effect on crime.
