Neighbourhood Watch

Claude Tremblay and Derek Ogden are currently heading up this program.  We have revitalized the Neighbourhood Watch over this past winter due to the amount of petty crime around our lake.  Derek Ogden , a former RCMP officer with a vast amount of knowledge in law enforcement, has engaged local RCMP who now have a file open for Davidson Lake.  This means that as team captains submit incident reports they will be passed on to RCMP to deal with.

The Neighbourhood Watch program helps deter outside intruders who often prey on seasonal cottages. The program consists of several team captains who report directly to Derek and Claude, watching out for neighbours’ properties and activities related to property damage or theft around the Lake.  The lake has been broken down into zones with captains for each zone, as follows:

It is important that folks have a means of reporting suspicious behavior, irregular activities and the like. The program is not designed to replace current law enforcement agencies but to complement their efforts in protecting our properties through being the eyes and ears of our community.  For immediate response in situations such as a crime in progress, suspicious person(s) or loud parties, please contact the RCMP directly at 506 357-4300 or 911

Residents and cottage owners of the Davidson Lake area are encouraged to contact your Neighbourhood Watch Team Captain or davidsonlakenb@gmail.com for any questions or to report any unusual activities such as open cottage or shed door, suspicious track to a cottage, car parked for a period of time that you don’t recognize or suspicious vehicles.   The following forms are also available, to provide as accurate information as possible:
