Crime in the Region of Halton has the (lowest) crime severity index among all large municipalities in Canada for the 24th straight year, and we also have the highest rate of solving crimes!

There are a number of reason for this – the Region does not have communities that are made up for the most part of financially disadvantaged people.

And the police service has access to some of the top crime solving tools in the country.
The police officers are also well trained.

The Halton Police Board is committed to ensuring that policing actions and consequences are aligned with Community needs, values and expectations.

These results clearly illustrate the alignment and global effectiveness and efficiency of our dedicated officers and civilian staff. These results also reflect the essential partnership between our Community and its Police Service – these results can only be possible with a supportive community engaged proactively in crime prevention and actively cooperating with police investigations and other activities.
