On Sunday June 12, West Division Property Crime investigators and volunteers from Neighborhood Watch knocked on the doors of more than 600 residences in the Town of Ajax, as part of the on-going Notification of Community Crime (N.O.C.C.) program. The goal of this program is to notify the community about proper crime prevention techniques.
In addition to informing residents of the increase in property crime in their neighbourhoods, members and volunteers also discussed crime prevention strategies and responded to residents� community safety concerns. Neighbourhood Watch volunteers also spoke with homeowners about the benefits of the Neighbourhood Watch program and distributed useful crime prevention literature.
The N.O.C.C. program has already canvassed twice this year, with many residents expressing their appreciation for DRPS being present in their neighbourhood and attempting to proactively address a community concern.
Anyone wishing to have more information about the Neighbourhood Watch program in Durham is encouraged to contact the Regional Coordinator Morgen Dobson via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5610.
