Hello Our West End,
Join in our Light the Night project across West Windsor.
It’s simple, we are launching a concerted effort of
1) Turning our Porch Lights on
2) Neighbours talking to Neighbours,
-encourage each other to turn porch lights on, every night.
-Through our Crime Prevention Town Hall with Windsor Police Services last March 31st, 2015 we learned that the regular use of porch lights deters crime and improves safety in our neighbourhoods.
Monday June 22nd,
before you leave for the fireworks….
Turn your porch lights on, and ask a neighbour to do the same.
3) Keep it going;
Make a habit of turning porch lights on!
-keep Our West End neighbourhoods shining with light!
-Offer to help seniors in your area to replace burnt out bulbs and assist with keeping trees and shrubs trimmed for good visibility to prevent the opportunity for crime to happen.
Information cards and posters
