The GHSA plans to create a more comprehensive Crime Prevention Page at this location in the near future. We would like to incorporate links to every available resource for crime prevention, access to information about local organizations like Block Watch that specialize in crime prevention, as well as all the latest developments in Surrey crime through news reports and RCMP bulletins. Our intention is to provide Surrey residents with all the information they require about protecting themselves, their families, their homes and their automobiles from criminal activity.
For now, we hope that the following resources are useful.
Crime is a Priority Concern for Grandview Heights; as the area densifies and amenities such as shopping centers and the Grandview Aquatic Centre increase both traffic to the area and the likelihood of both serious and nuisance crime, it is incumbent upon residents who care about living in a safe community to be aware of resources. We will be posting specific issues as they arise in the Priority Concerns section of the website and flash news in the Announcements. For starters, set your house alarm at night and do not leave valuables in your car.
Crime alerts will be sent in the GHSA e-letter to members.
Two additional resources on the GHSA website are located in the left fly-out menus:
– RCMP Stolen Auto Theft Initiative
– COSMOS crime mapping
Block Watch captains for many areas of Grandview Heights are also urgently needed. If you are interested in getting involved in your neighbourhood, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GHSA supports and encourages Block Watch outreach in many ways. Cooperative Grandview Heights Block Watch Crime Prevention/resource seminars are one example. Click here for the March 2015 Target Hardening Event.
Here is a list of several excellent crime resources:
