Here’s How Halton Police are Promoting Crime Prevention
Halton Police are promoting crime prevention throughout the region.
How you may ask?
Crime Prevention Week.
The Halton Regional Police Service will soon be kicking off Ontario's annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from Nov. 4 to Nov. 10.
“We know from experience that crime prevention works. When police partner with community agencies and engage with their residents to stop crime in its tracks, everyone wins,” Halton Police Chief Stephen Tanner said in a recent press release.
“We are proud that Halton Region has maintained the lowest crime severity index in Canada for 13 straight years. But the bolstering of community safety and well-being takes hard work and collaboration. That's why the Halton Regional Police Service is proud to partner with government, community leaders, young people, and businesses to prevent crime throughout our community. We encourage our residents to stay tuned to our social media channels to learn more about these invaluable partnerships.”
The week is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and all police services across Ontario.
