Nov. 8, 2022, Ontario – Ontario police services are supporting the provincial Crime Prevention Week (#CPWeek2022) taking place November 6 to 12, 2022, with in-person and online community events designed to raise awareness of the many crime prevention initiatives being undertaken by police organizations in collaboration with community partners.
The annual Provincial Crime Prevention Week’s theme is “Safer. Stronger. Together.” and is led by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General. It provides police services with opportunities to showcase the successful collaborative efforts between police services and community partners as they work together towards the common goal of preventing crime and building safe communities across Ontario.
OACP President Chief Nishan Duraiappah hosted an event at Peel Regional Police Headquarters in Mississauga, ON marking Crime Prevention Week. He was joined by the Honourable Michael Kerzner, Solicitor General for Ontario, and community partners from across Peel Region.
“I am proud that police services in Ontario are actively participating in Crime Prevention Week. In my capacity as OACP President, I get to see the hard work and dedication of so many outstanding police officers, civilian personnel, Special Constables, and Auxiliary Officers in this area of our work,” said Chief Duraiappah. “A common element in so much of our law enforcement efforts is the prevention of crime before it occurs.”
Throughout Crime Prevention Week, police services will be reminding the public that everyone who lives, works or goes to school in Ontario deserves to feel safe. Community safety and well-being is a shared responsibility. Preventing crime before it happens is a goal all of us share. Ontarians are encouraged to work with their local police service(s) and other government, educational, health care, and social service providers/community groups to address crime issues in their communities.
