Boyle & District Rural Crime Watch

The Boyle & District Crime Watch Organization is a volunteer association, striving to prevent unlawful activities in our community and district.

Our association could not function effectively without the continuing volunteer support of our members. We educate our members in property identification, safety and reporting of criminal activities to aid in our path towards a crimeless community. Our members aid in reporting suspicious activity and criminal movement in the rural and urban areas. These activities are then reported to the R.C.M.P. and Natural Resources. Our members need only devote minimal personal time, as their duties are performed while carrying on everyday activities.

Hard Target

Here's How You and Your Family Benefit
By Attending One of Our Training Seminars:

Hard Target is a daylong personal safety seminar where we take the most proven and effective strategies for reducing the chance of someone becoming the victim of a crime, and combine them with strategies for getting out of a physical situation should you find yourself in one.

We can't teach the average person how to punch someone properly in just a few hours, so this training revolves around the use of leverage instead of pain compliance.

Here is just a sample of what will be revealed:

  • A powerful stunning technique that individuals of any age and size can use to give them time to escape a violent situation
  • Why leaving your registration and insurance documents inside your vehicle could be an extremely costly mistake (you won't believe what criminals have been doing now!)
  • A counter-move to quickly make (if someone grabs you while you are walking past them) that gives you time to react to whatever comes next
  • 3 things that criminals looks for when committing a crime and how to use them to your advantage
  • Why you should never yell, "FIRE!" if you're in danger, and what to do instead to get an INSTANT response
  • What you must ALWAYS keep in mind when encountering aggressive panhandlers and how to handle them effectively
  • Why criminals often target individuals waiting for public transit and what you can do to keep yourself safe
  • Why "all valuables removed" placards in vehicle windows may not be as effective as you think
  • How owning a garage can make you a more desirable target for crime and what criminals will watch for
  • What you MUST avoid doing if you go for runs or walks on your own (and No, the time of day is NOT a factor in how safe you are)
  • and much, Much, More
