Website News Alert
2020.04.25: A year later and these vehicles are still being stolen on a daily basis in the Toronto area. If you have one, at night, park another vehicle behind one of these to prevent thieves from driving off in yours.
February 7, 2019. YRPS warns of SUVs being stolen. Over the past year 80+ Lexus RX350, Lexus GX460, Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Highlanders have been
stolen. Thieves are defeating their security systems and reprogramming new key fobs to start these vehicles and driving off with them.
Do not leave these vehicles in your driveway overnight without additional security features.
Example video from Toronto Police:
Speakers Corner: Car theft victim says calls to police were ignored.
When you report a crime and personally do not have video, then the police must physically canvas your neighbours for video. If they are not home and there is also no contact
information for them, then the police must repeatedly return until they make contact, which is extremely time consuming and police might not have time for. Being proactive and
having a neighbourhood watch allows police to see what members have cameras and provides them with contact information so they can arrange for video. Some of this responsibility now
falls on citizens to help the police.
2019.09.25: Use caution if you suspect someone is in your house or backyard. Recently, a homeowner was stabbed
when he confronted thieves in his backyard. Note: police article no longer available.

Police Neighbourhood Watch Training Videos
Neighbourhood watch training videos on what to do and how to better protect yourself. It is recommended that you watch these videos if you
plan on joining a neighbourhood watch.

See the following safety page for safety tips.
Home security cameras: Check with your municipality if there are any by-laws. If not, then it is recommended that any backyard cameras
do not point into your neighbours yard - just aim your cameras more into your yard and closer to the ground. On the street there is no expectation of privacy. Smartphone
cameras, Google Maps, Google Street View and dashcams are everywhere so, adding security cameras is not much different. Try to cover out to the street for perpetrators that come by vehicle.
Discuss with your neighbours if they would like you to cover a portion of their front lawn to help with their security. Be a good neighbour and respect their wishes when it comes to

Interview with a burglar about Break and Enters:
Basic Crime Definitions
Robbery: When someone does or tries to steal your property AND assaults or threatens to assault you. ie. A street mugging or a theft from a store where a weapon
was shown. Two examples of thefts mislabelled as robberies are finding your house broken into (a Break and Enter) or shoplifting (Theft Under).
Break and Enter: Unauthorized entry into your home/business, closed garage, shed or fully fenced/gated yard and steals or attempts to steal property. Breaking into your
car is not a break and enter, just a Theft From Vehicle.

Neighbourhood Signs and Stickers
On multiple occasions people have asked about how to get signs and window stickers. You must contact your local police service directly for this information. Neighbourhood Protect has
no sign/sticker program. Also, most police services require around 50% neighbour sign-up before they will endorse your watch. So, before contacting the police, you need to actually
build a functioning neighbourhood watch.
Questions/comments can be directed to email@example.com. If you live outside of Canada and Sierra Leone
and would like this tool for your area send an email to discuss.
