Realty Watch is a community crime prevention program operating across the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada, from Whistler to Hope and every community in between.

Over 12,000 REALTORS® assist police as extra ‘eyes and ears’ in their communities.

The program is organized and run by REALTOR® volunteers from the Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Chilliwack real estate boards.

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/RCMP-activated page, or fan-out, to search for missing or abducted people, suspicious vehicles, or people with medical conditions who may be in danger.

Realty Watch is a partner agency of Amber Alert.
