Westwind neighbours! We are looking for members for the Neighbourhood Watch Program. Please contact
Westwind School or headored@shaw.ca for more information.

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.
