The police of Thérèse-De Blainville is trying to enforce the Quebec government rules for social distancing by announcing a new initiative urging the population to be vigilant and kind by paying attention to their surroundings and their neighbors.
The current situation of isolation and confinement due to the Covid-19 makes violence more difficult to see, but it is more present than ever for the people who suffer it. Operation Neighborhood Awareness advocates social responsibility through citizen vigilance.
Citizens are urged to report any concerns of theirs that have to do with a situation that they became aware of that involves physical, psychological abuse or neglect. Posters of this project have been placed in the main food stores as well as pharmacies in the area.
Witnesses of such situations are asked to call 911 for emergency situations or in other cases 450-435-2421 ext. 0
