Safety Tips for Burglaries

Recently, the Town of Hampstead and its surrounding areas have experienced an increase in attempted thefts: home and vehicle break-ins. The Town’s Public Security is actively monitoring the situation in Hampstead and collaborating with the Service de Police de Montréal (SPVM) to keep residents and their properties safe.

We ask Hampstead residents to report any suspicious activity to Public Security dispatch at 514-369-8250, which is available 24/7. The SPVM will also continue to investigate the situation.

Records show that these thefts have a pattern of frequent repetition over a short period of time. Therefore, the Town urges all residents to be extra vigilant and to adopt precautions such as:

If you come home and notice your dwelling has been broken into or sense suspicious activity on your property, don’t go in.

Call Hampstead Public Security and the SPVM and wait for the authorities to arrive.

Your safety is our priority, and all our efforts are being put towards counteracting these crimes,
