The Halton Regional Police Service Set to Launch 2018 Crime Prevention Week – Help Us Help You

The Halton Regional Police Service will be kicking off Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs between November 4 and 10, 2018. The week-long promotion of crime prevention 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.

Police Chief Stephen Tanner said: “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.

“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.”

    Please catch people who trespass onto private property: turn on exterior water taps, destroy newly planted plants and trees, put wild animals in window wells, empty BBQ propane tanks, put large dead branches in roadside leaf piles. This is relentlessly ongoing month after month and year after year. That is the regularity. More visible police presence is needed at night and daytime around Burlington.
