On May 1, South Armour Heights Residents’ Association (SAHRA) and Upper Avenue Community Association (UACA) hosted a Community Safety Night featuring representatives and local crime data from Toronto Police Services (TPS).
Each of our Resident’s Associations has received feedback from our membership expressing concern about safety in our community. As a result of those concerns, about 4 months ago we began partnering with 32 Division of TPS to put this evening together.
Our objective was that you leave with an understanding of the crime data for our community and equally important that you leave with a list of actionable items that you can implement to improve the safety of your home and also what we can do jointly to improve the overall safety of our community.
Information was presented on a number of topics including:
- Crime Trends Bedford-Park Nortown Neighbourhood, 2014-2018
- 2019 Crime Stats
- How to Report Crime
- Home Security
- How Our Neighbourhood Compares
- What we Can Do Together
The Neighbourhood Watch program is a proven solution to reducing crime levels in our communities. We will be moving forward with this program. A Neighbourhood Watch information session will be held on Thursday, June 13th from 7:00-9:00 pm. More information will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks.
If you want to participate in a Neighbourhood Watch program, please send an email expressing your interest to [email protected].
Additional information about area crime can be found on our Crime Prevention page.
