Policing Priorities – 2017-2019

  • At a high level, the priorities of the Halton Police Board fall under the following themes:
    • Community Safety and Well-Being
      • The Halton Regional Police Service employs principles of risk-driven multi-sectoral collaboration to address a variety of police and community concerns. This approach was borne out of the realization that police needed to partner with external human service providers to address more complex issues impacting safety and well-being.

        Anti-social behaviours are rooted in a variety of issues, which often co-exist. To effectively address or prevent these situations, similarly complex strategies are needed. They require multi-sectoral support with aligned priorities and parallel programming.

        Currently, the Halton Regional Police Service is at the forefront of work designed to identify community risk factors and coordinate strategies to increase protective factors. Consequently, a community of practice intent on a safer and healthier community for all has been cultivated. This is the Halton Regional Police Service’s Strategy for Community Safety and Well-Being Planning.

        Input was received from community members in all four of Halton’s municipalities and a draft Community Safety and Well-Being Plan is being finalized. For more information about the Plan please visit: http://www.halton.ca
