Yesterday we held our 4th town hall focusing on crime prevention and reduction. The targeted neighbourhoods were those around St. James grade school, Mic Mac Park and Windsor Regional Hospital. The meeting was held at the John McGivney Children's Centre.
We had approximately 15-20 residents in attendance. Lee Tome from Windsor Fire and Rescue presented on crime prevention strategies. 9-1-1 Dispatch also presented along with the Safety Village who discussed neighbourhood watch. All questions form residents were answered and many were educated on different techniques to prevent and reduce crime in their neighbourhood.
We hope to establish a neighbourhood watch following this town hall in the above mentioned neighbourhoods.
I want to personally thank Lorraine Oloya from our team and Chantalle Faubert from the Safety Village who delivered flyers and helped organize the event.
It is our intent to continue our work in organizing neighbourhood watch groups with a focus on neighbourhoods west of Huron Church. Ultimately, our goal is to eventually develop a resident-led crime prevention and reduction committee comprised of residents all throughout the west-end.
Below are some pictures from the town hall.
