West Windsor as seen from Google Maps

A town hall meeting will take place tomorrow in hopes of getting many residents of west Windsor together to step up and fight crime.

West-end resident Fabio Costante, along with other residents in the west-end, are hosting a neighbourhood watch town hall at the Church of the Ascension located at 1385 University Avenue West starting at 6pm on Wednesday. The children’s Safety Village and Windsor Police will be present to discuss how to formally start a neighbourhood watch, in addition to answering any questions or concerns that residents may have.

The meeting is geared for residents who live on Campbell, McEwan, Curry, McKay, and Cameron, between Riverside Drive West and University Avenue West However, organizers say that it will be open to all residents who live in the west-end and who are interested in learning about neighbourhood watch and crime reduction.

In light of recent unfortunate criminal activity in the west-end, residents feel that they have to take it upon themselves to crack down on crime. Fabio Costante says the community is coming together and ready to take action. “We’ve been very successful at establishing neighbourhood watches that have provided Windsor Police with useful tips and in some cases have led to arrests in the neighbourhood. We want to build on this momentum and replicate a crime fighting model, vis-a-vis neighbourhood watch and crime prevention training, to other neighbourhoods in the west-end. We’re sending a clear message to the community: the west-end is coming together more than ever, we’re looking out for each other and we’re sharing relevant information in unprecedented volumes. We want to make the west-end the best place to live, work and play and this is one step in that direction.”
