Call it a 21st-century version of a Neighborhood Watch - an electronic prevention programme designed to reduce crime in our town.
The Town of Petawawa Police Services Board in partnership with policing personnel from the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the OPP has implemented Petawawa E-Cop, an online portal designed to put information about such issues as property crime, emergency alerts and issues of a critical safety nature directly into the hands of our community’s most important stakeholders -- its citizens.
Register and watch for periodic E-Blasts (emails) on how residents and business owners can keep themselves, their families and their neighbourhoods safer. These bulletins are designed to :
Petawawa E-Cop can help reduce all manner of crimes against property, persons, families, children and the elderly. It aids in the fight against illegal drugs, vandalism, break-and-enters, possession of stolen property and traffic complaints regarding those driving without a licence or proper insurance. In the event of an area emergency occurrence, it provides emergency service personnel with an information sharing tool.
If you want to partner with your police service to keep Petawawa safer, then E-Cop may appeal to you.
