Residents are urged to take every possible precaution against vandalism and “break and enters” in our neighbourhood. As usual, most burglaries have occurred in the daytime, so be sure that your neighbours know if you go away. Please make sure your driveway lights are working properly at all times; check them particularly before you go away on a trip, and replace old bulbs before they burn out.

As part of our ongoing service to the community, your Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator will be visiting new neighbours to explain the various aspects of the programme. If you have any questions or need information about Neighbourhood Watch, please contact the co-ordinator, Joel Porter, at 613.790.5375, e-mail Joel.

The Ottawa Police Service publishes incident reports on a city, district, and neighbourhood basis. Because these reports contain lots of information, it is sometimes difficult to drill down and find information about your community. The CA will be publishing the incident reports covering our community on a monthly basis. Full incident statistics can be found at:
Note 1: The locations identifiers contained in these reports refer to “blockface addresses”, not a specific address. A blockface address is a truncated form of a specific address that serves to group information geographically while preserving individuals’ right to privacy. For example, 123 Any Street would be grouped in the 100 block of Any Street as would any address between 100 and 199 on Any Street; 1783 Any Road would be grouped in the 1700 blockface of Any Road as would any address between 1700 and 1799 on Any Road.
Note 2: You’ll notice several incidents at 3000 Block of BASELINE RD. Assume this at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital property.
