Block Watch is an extension of what you may already be doing on a daily basis. Many of us have watched our neighbour’s home for them when they are away. Under Block Watch, that watchfulness is broadened and becomes more systematic. All residents participating in the program will get to know each other while keeping an eye out for each other. The program involves two commitments.
Every night before going to bed we want all citizens to get in the habit of double checking that their vehicles, property and residence are secure. Offenders will often go down a street checking vehicles and houses for doors left open. By simply locking your door you could avoid waking up to an intruder in your home.
The Block Watch Program is a FREE community-based crime prevention program organized by Oceanside RCMP and Oceanside Community Safety.
Oceanside Community Safety through our Block Watch program is proud to partner with Emergency Management Oceanside (Parksville, Qualicum Beach, RDN Areas E, F, G, H) in informing area residents on aspects of public safety and crime prevention in case of a disaster.
