New Brunswickers can feel safe in their communities, knowing that there are a number of ongoing efforts to combat crime around the province.
Government is working with policing agencies to address crime in our communities.
This year, government has invested $3 million to create a Safer Communities Program to address crime in the province.
Everyone has a role to play in keeping communities safe.
You can help make your community safer by reporting crime to the police and by looking out for your friends and neighbours.
If you know of a crime, report it – no matter how small or insignificant it seems. Your information can help police identify patterns and know what crimes are happening and where.
Reporting crimes online frees up police officers for urgent calls and to respond to non-emergency calls faster.
If it’s a matter of life or death, call 9-1-1.
If you have a crime to report or non-urgent information that could help an investigation, contact:
You can make a confidential complaint about a property you believe is involved in illegal activities like selling drugs, by contacting our Safer Communities Program at 1-877-826-2122, or by email at SCAN@gnb.ca.
Drugs are a serious threat in communities, both big and small, across New Brunswick. We are taking this issue seriously with our policing partners and making investments to address the problem. Efforts to disrupt the illegal drug supply in New Brunswick are ongoing. Below are operational highlights from independent and collaborative initiatives of the RCMP, police agencies, and Justice and Public Safety peace officers.
This work is having a positive impact to build safer communities.
Peace officers in the province work in many areas and enforce the Criminal Code and pieces of provincial legislation.Learn more
