SCAN : Safer Communities & Neighbourhoods
Are you worried about illegal drugs, alcohol, prostitution, or gaming in your building or on your street? The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act (SCAN) gives you a way to report your concerns and take back your neighbourhood. http://novascotia.ca/just/Public_Safety/safer_communities.asp
SCAN improves community safety by targeting and, if necessary, shutting down residential and commercial buildings and land that are regularly used for illegal activities.
SCAN gives citizens the tools to report problem residences and businesses, and gives authorities the power to investigate and take action. It also holds property owners accountable for threatening or disturbing activities regularly taking place on their property.
If you want to report a problem property or have any questions regarding SCAN, please call toll free at 1-877-357-2337. Hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. If calling after hours, you can leave a message and someone will return your call.
If you are reporting a problem property, you may also want to notify your local police agency. If you have an emergency, dial 911.
Remember - It's Your Neighbourhood. Your call.
