Reporting

Many community members have expressed their frustration with reporting, citing slow response, lack of response, or lack of outcomes. Reporting criminal activity and bylaw infractions is essential. Failure to report is the best way to ensure no response at all. Resources can not be allocated to an issue that goes unreported. Please see below for contacts for reporting issues and accessing resources.

Neighbourhood Response Tool

The City developed a neighbourhood response tool that helps you make the right call at the right time. It covers a range of situations from witnessing vandalism, intoxication and substance abuse to property and business concerns, and provides tangible steps to increase safety and minimize risk. The Neighbourhood Response Tool is your go-to resource for “Who to Call When”. For additional resources and contacts specific to McCauley, please see below.
