Halton Police Services Board Launches Community Collaboration Initiative

The Halton Police Services Board is proud to announce a new project highlighting stories of collaboration between the Halton Region Police Service (HRPS) and the local community. The goal is to build even stronger police-community connections in Halton through sharing experiences and lessons learned, and ultimately further advance community safety in the Region.

Each month, the Halton Police Services Board will share a recent story of interest to Halton residents through media advisories, and in the New Year potentially on social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. All press will receive a turnkey press kit including a press release, one pager, contact information, and images.

I think residents of Halton will benefit from knowing more about how our police and community members work together to keep our neighbourhoods safe.” - Rob Burton, Mayor of Oakville and Chair of the Halton Police Services Board.

Positive interactions between HRPS and the community play a huge role in keeping Halton one of the safest places in Canada. We are pleased to have the opportunity to share these with a wider audience.” - Chief Stephen Tanner, Halton Regional Police Service

Tanner, reports directly to the board.
