Over the past few months we have had reports from neighbours that there has been an increase in criminal activity happening in the Durand neighbourhood, with reports of break and enters, bike theft, and most recently, a report that individuals were being followed home by groups of men in cars.

The DNA has had discussions with the neighbourhood crime manager at the HPS about these incidents and we have been told that patrols have increased throughout the Division. Regardless, the DNA continues to press for more patrols along with more traffic monitoring.

You can help by continuing to report all crime and all suspicious activity directly to the police. If you’re dissatisfied with their response you should send your thoughtful yet strongly worded concerns to Councillor Farr.
