The Saint John Police Force assists the By-Law Enforcement Service in ensuring City By-Laws are observed. The By-Law Enforcement Service is responsible for the enforcement of City By-Laws related to maintenance and usage of property, animal control, noise, and some licensing. City staff investigate complaints and inspect properties to make sure the standards laid out in the by-laws are met.
Compliance with City By-Laws is obtained through education, mediation and as necessary through enforcement and prosecution.
