Did You Know

The City of London is in the process of developing its Community Safety & Well Being Plan. This is a Government of Ontario mandated plan that municipalities are required to have in place by January 2021. For information, and to complete a survey visit the website www.london.ca.

The Community Crime Map can be accessed on our NWL website www.nwlondon.ca. It can also be accessed through the London Police website www.londonpolice.ca. The website also provides crime statistics, which can be found by going to the tab “About” and clicking on “Crime Statistics”.

Seasonal Safety

Winter is a popular time to travel to warmer climates. If you are going to be away from your residence, here are some tips:

  • Set light timers to turn on and off at different times in different rooms to make it appear someone is at home.
  • Install motion-activated lights near doors and windows outside your home.
  • Put blocks of wood in the tracks of sliding doors and windows to prevent them from being opened.

Stay safe, and be sure to watch this space for more updates.
