Maple Ridge property crime down

blockwatchAs Block Watch celebrates its 25 year anniversary, more neighbourhoods are accepting this program as a means of preventing property crime.

Maple Ridge alone has a number of neighbourhoods under the Block Watch program, which may have an impact in the drop in property crime.

Property crime in Maple Ridge has gone down 5 per cent from 2012-2013.

According to Maple Ridge’s website, Block Watch is a “key component of our enforcement strategy.”

Const. Dave Krenz, co-founder of Block Watch, focuses on neighbours looking after neighbours, and says Block Watch’s aim is to “reduce property crime through education and awareness.”
