Cops go door-to-door in Mississauga neighbourhood in effort to solve shootings


Published August 26, 2022 at 11:07 am

Police will visit homes in a northwest Mississauga neighbourhood tomorrow afternoon (Aug. 27) seeking information about several recent shootings in the area.

Investigators from the Peel Regional Police 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau say the effort is also intended to raise awareness among residents of the Glen Erin Dr./Britannia Rd. neighbourhood so they can take any necessary precautions to keep safe.

Starting at noon, officers will be distributing information flyers to area residents related to “multiple shooting incidents” that took place in their neighbourhood in June and July.

“Officers…and uniform patrol will be in this area engaging with residents. We will also be available to discuss ways police can better assist the community when these incidents occur,” police said in a news release today (Aug. 26).

“The purpose of this event is to make residents aware that officers are actively investigating these incidents and is also an opportunity to speak with investigators one on one.”

In their news release, police didn’t reveal any details about the shootings.

Police told earlier this year while conducting a similar door-to-door campaign in west Mississauga that they’re hesitant to reveal details as the shootings are “active cases.”

Anyone with information on any of the shootings is urged to call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 1133 or 1102, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
