New Community Partnership

Belleville, Ontario On 27 June, 2012 the Quinte District Association of Realtors Inc will initiate a new community partnership with Belleville Police Service named Realty Watch.

The purpose of Realty Watch has two components:

  • REALTORS® observe and report to police any suspicious activity that they may happen upon in their day-to-day business
  • In emergency situations, REALTORS® respond to a police fan-out message to keep an eye out for missing or abducted people, suspicious vehicles, or people with medical conditions who may be in danger. Any realtor that observes

If REALTORS® see or hear anything that could assist police with the fan-out, they call 911. They remain on the lookout until they receive notice the fan-out has been cancelled, usually within 24 hours. Thankfully, fan-outs are quite rare.

Please consider attending the launch of this program.
