My Neighbour Card
The Federation of Calgary Communities, in partnership with the Calgary Police Service has created a tool for building relationships with your neighbours and preventing crime in your community. The My Neighbour Card asks you to write down and keep the names, addresses and phone numbers of up to 9 homes surrounding yours. You may have received the card in your mailbox and it is also available online.
The Calgary Police Service (CPS) also has several resources available on their website to help you acquire the information and tools that you need to prevent crime in your community. On the CPS website, you can sign up to receive alerts and requests for public assistance, learn how to be a good witness and how to prevent various types of crimes that affect your family and your community.
