Protective Services

Municipalities are often the first level of response in the event of emergencies. In addition to our Fire Dpeartment and By-law Enforcement team, the Town of Antigonish has a variety of other protective services resources that we draw upon to keep our citizens safe. 


The Town of Antigonish contracts with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for policing services. For more information on the services they provide at the Antigonish detachment, please visit their website

Antigonish Crime Prevention

The Antigonish Town and County Crime Prevention Association is a non-profit organization with the goal of reducing community crime in conjunction with other groups with similar aims. The Crime Prevention Association is made up of people from various social, business, government and individual sectors. The association also works with citizens to help seniors and youth. It helps to combat crime such as vandalism and domestic violence. It also strives to identify problems relating to crime and to provide solutions, wherever possible, in accordance with the by-laws and objectives of the organization. The Antigonish Town and County Crime Prevention Association invites members of the public to work together to prevent further crime in the communities of Antigonish Town and County.
