An important goal of Langley City Council is to foster strong community ties among residents in the City of Langley. Neighbourhood safety is a team effort and it is evident that when residents work together to improve community safety it results in a reduction in crime. To that end, Council mandated the Crime Prevention Task Group to develop strategies that will encourage residents to get involved and take an active role in helping to prevent and reduce crime in our neighbourhoods.
To realize this goal, the Task Group has developed the “Know Your Neighbour” campaign! An initiative that will have volunteers hitting the streets September 28 and October 5, going door to door to educate residents one household at a time, about crime prevention strategies and to share tips about how to easily improve neighbourhood safety. We want residents to get to know one another and help us build a strong, safe community.
If you’d like to volunteer to spread the message door to door please contact us! Canvassers will be going out two Saturdays – September 28 and October 5. Please contact Dave Selvage, Manager of Bylaw Enforcement by Friday, September 13 to sign up and help out! firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-514-2822.
