The partnership between Halton police and members of the public is the focus of this year’s annual Crime Prevention Week in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills.

Running from Sunday, Nov. 6, to Saturday, Nov. 12, the theme is Safer. Stronger. Together. The HRPS social media campaign will highlight the key role that members of the public, in partnership with police, play when it comes to preventing crime and promoting community safety and well-being in Halton Region.

“Crime prevention is a shared responsibility that forms the foundation for safe communities,” said HRPS Chief Stephen Tanner.

“Every resident of Halton has the right to live in a peaceful environment, free of crime and violence. Our service is proud to work with members of the public and the communities we serve as we strive to achieve this fundamental goal.”

Over the following week, a number of collaborative initiatives between the public, community organizations, and the police will be featured across the Service’s social media platforms.

Topics will include:

  • Crime Stoppers
  • Auxiliary Unit programs
  • Traffic safety and impaired driving
  • Fraud prevention and reporting
  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

To access this year’s campaign, as well as the latest HRPS-related news and information, local residents can follow the police on Twitter (@HaltonPolice, @MiltHH, @HRPSOak, and @HRPSBurl) and Facebook (Halton Regional Police Service).
