Crime Prevention

Block Watch

Block Watch is a free, community-based crime prevention program where neighbourhoods take a proactive approach to crime by forming a communication chain between residents. Vernon currently has 50 active Block Watch programs.

Contact the Community Safety Coordinator - Crime Prevention for more information on how to get involved.

Certified Crime Free Buildings

Members of the Certified Crime Free Buildings Program work in partnership with the Vernon Community Safety Unit to reduce criminal and nuisance activity on their properties. However, there is no guarantee that crime will not occur at any member property and any references to individuals and property management companies should not be considered an endorsement by the Vernon RCMP or Community Safety Unit.
