Safety Tips

Preventing crime and maintaining safe communities is everyone's responsibility. By practising the following personal and property safety tips, you can help reduce the incidents of crime and keep your community safe.


Report Form - Road Watch

Road Watch provides residents an opportunity to report dangerous and aggressive driving throughout the Durham Region. If you observe aggressive or dangerous driving, fill out a Citizen’s Report Form.

Aggressive driving may include:
  • Excessive speeding,
  • Tailgating,
  • Failure to stop, and
  • Any act that puts other drivers at a high risk of collision or injury.
Record as much information as possible. Even if you are unable to record the licence number, submit the form so police have information on high-risk areas in the community. It is important that the form be signed to safeguard the system from abuse. Your personal information is used for statistical purposes only and is held in the strictest of confidence by us. Drop Box locations are printed on the Road Watch form.

If a driver is reported more than once, the police will contact that individual regarding the reports. Subsequent offences may result in enforcement action by the police depending on the severity of the incident.
