Rural Crime Watch

Rural Crime Watch is a community-based program designed to reduce crime in rural areas around Prince George & the Regional District of Fraser Fort George. The program involves neighbours helping neighbours by keeping an eye on each other’s property and reporting any suspicious activity to each other and the police. Rural Crime Watch is a proactive approach to crime prevention and is based on the belief that community problems require community solutions.
