Community Safety By Heather Chapman, Community Watch
Thank you to the residents who came out to our Community Safety Event on May 8. This event was timely considering the recent criminal activity in our neighbourhood. Around 35 people visited informational displays and had an opportunity to talk with representatives from our police and fire services. A big thank you to the following businesses for donating some great door prizes: Cooke Insurance, Canadian Tire, Boston Pizza, Saskatoon Fire Department, and Montgomery Place Community Association.
Residents are making good use of our Community Watch Facebook Group by posting alerts to inform their neighbours of suspicious and/or criminal activity. Please remember to report these incidents to police as they use phone calls and statistics to help determine the need for patrols in certain areas. For those of you who would like to provide us with information or wish to receive updates about Community Watch but are not on Facebook, you can reach us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s up to us to help keep Montgomery Place a safe neighbourhood.
