What is Neighbourhood Watch



Neighbourhood Watch (NW) is an association of residents of a 
community, who are bonded together with the objective of 
reducing or preventing crime.  The program works within a 
defined geographical area and in partnership with the Ottawa 
Police Service through the local Community Police Centre.

It is a “community driven” program aimed at discouraging and 
preventing crime at the local level. The success of the program is 
dependent on a commitment to cooperate between area residents,
 the Police and the residents themselves.

Key elements are:
          Making your home a less inviting target for criminal activity
          Recognizing and reporting suspicious activity in the 
neighbourhood
Working together with your neighbours and the Police 
to prevent and discourage crime.
                  
Main Goals are:
Promoting crime prevention awareness and activities.
Establishing and maintaining effective avenues of 
ommunication between Watch coordinators, Watch 
members and the Police.
Providing a forum for coordinators and the Ottawa Police 
to present and discuss current criminal and crime 
prevention activities.

The Kanata & Stittsville Community Police Centre (CPC) 
wants to help you and your neighbours maintain 
an active NW on your street, and in your area. .
