Cottage break and enters, damage and theft are serious concerns impacting cottagers, cottage associations, police and insurance companies.
Cottage Watch programs began in 1993 and, due to their success, are encouraged and supported by local and provincial police.
The KLA initiated its Cottage Watch program in 2018. On this page, we outline the program as well as the roles and responsibilities of cottagers and Cottage Watch coordinators; offer tips for protecting your property; and explain procedures for reporting a crime or suspicious activity.
Every cottage should have a Cottage Watch decal displayed on a window or door closest to the main entrance.
Cottage Watch signs have been placed at road entrances and on Koshlong Lake information boards.
