Martin Tremblay lived and worked in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario his entire life. For the last 7 years of his life, Martin had been a resident of Robin Street with his family, including three children of his own.
Martin knew just how important it is to keep an eye on our children and on all of our surroundings, especially in today’s day and age.
With general crime steadily on the rise and petty theft skyrocketing, Martin decided it was time to do something in his own neighbourhood. Launching this neighbourhood watch was his way to reach other residents as well as parents in the area who want to work together to fortify our local community.
Whether you have children enrolled at St. Mary’s French Immersion Catholic school or if you are simply a concerned citizen who is interested in looking out for one another together, you have come to the right place.
His intention in creating this neighbourhood watch is not to spy on neighbors or to create a localized police state. Instead, Martin was simply seeking to build a loyal bond and a sense of camaraderie among everyone in the local community.
Martin believed that if we get to know one another and stick together, that there is power in numbers, especially when it comes to protecting our children and our most vulnerable citizens.
The purpose of this neighbourhood watch is not only to protect, but also to inform local residents of how they can stay safe in their surroundings at all times. We strive to bring members of the community together, especially during tough times. By sticking together, we can help ward off criminals, prevent crime, and keep criminals from targeting our town and children.
With our neighbourhood watch, we work together to keep an eye out for petty thieves, suspicious passersby, and even violent criminals and thugs who find their way into our community.
Martin built this website to provide another platform to connect with those who are involved, especially during potential crimes and when immediate communication is necessary.
Martin wanted to create an online presence for our families to help other residents in the community, to help get to know more about the work we do, when we meet, and how they can get involved and take action themselves. Martin knew how challenging it can be to find local resources, especially when it comes to the safety and security of our children.
