Neighbourhood Eye is a neighbourhood patrol initiative that allows residents to actively play a role in the prevention of crime and enhance their neighbourhoods. Residents from an established Neighbourhood Association will:

  • Form walking patrol and be a visible presence in their neighbourhood
  • Report graffiti, broken equipment, burnt out lights, potholes and more
  • Get to know their neighbourhood and neighbours
  • Recognize good neighbour deeds and be a positive influence in the neighbourhood
  • Recommend coordinated walks with community members once a week with a minimum of two people

Recruitment

Residents who are interested in getting involved in the Neighbourhood Eye initiative in their neighbourhood are asked to contact neighbourhoodeye@cityofgp.com provide us with your full name and the neighbourhood that you reside in, or contact a Neighbourhood Association board.

Training

In getting residents and their Neighbourhood Associations set up with the right tools to be successful Grande Prairie Neighbourhood Associations and Crime Prevention will be hosting training sessions two times a year.

Reporting

  • Download the SeeClickFix app to your smartphone to report potholes, road concerns, snow removal, street sweeping, street signs and signals (include the direction of travel when encountering signal)
  • Read our Reporting Guidelines to learn what types of issues are appropriate for reporting.
