The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act is intended to empower residents to take back their neighbourhoods by reporting problem residences or businesses that are habitually used for illegal activities. These activities could include drugs, prostitution, gang or criminal activities, child sexual abuse or the unlawful sale or consumption of alcohol.
If you are suspicious of a property in your neighbourhood, do not investigate it yourself or approach the occupants. Please call the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Investigation Unit immediately.
Signs of Illegal Activity
There are some common signs that illegal activities are taking place in a home or business, particularly if they happen in combination with each other, and frequently.
Here are some things to watch for:
• frequent visitors - often driving expensive vehicles - at all times of day and night
• frequent late night activity
• blackened windows or curtains always drawn
• unfriendly people who appear to be secretive about their activities
• people watching cars suspiciously as they drive by
• heavy home security installations
• strange odors coming from the building or garbage
• garbage that contains an unusually large number of bottles or containers, especially chemical containers; and
• placing garbage in a neighbour's collection area
