The recent vehicle break-ins and criminal activity that have recently taken place in Waterdown is unacceptable. In my meeting with the Police this week, it was confirmed Police are working with residents to zero in on the perpetrators.
The areas and streets appear to be random across Waterdown, as well as Binbrook and Stoney Creek. The break ins were reported within Waterdown over a two week period, during two separate evenings. Approximately 17 vehicles were reported as being vandalized. A similar event occurred just over a year ago and Police were successful in catching the criminals that were responsible.
Please help me advocate for more police presence . It is imperative that all incidents and any suspicious activity are reported directly to Hamilton Police as they conduct their investigation, including photos and any footage that is available. Even if nothing was taken from a vehicle or if damage was minimal, please report it – this information is very important as Police look into these crimes and act accordingly.
Approved Police Station: In 2020, the Police Board voted and Council approved my motion for $16 Million dollars in funding for a new Police/Fire Station in Waterdown. Staff and Police are working on identifying a location which once finalized, we will see shovels in the ground. Our team of Officers report out of Station Division 3 but are physically working within Flamborough / Waterdown communities every day.
