Orangeville Police recognizes Crime Prevention Week

The Orangeville Police Service is proud to recognize and support Crime Prevention Week which runs from November 3-9, 2019. The week-long promotion of crime prevention is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and all police services across Ontario.

“Everyone plays a role in preventing crime and helping to keep our community safe”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski. “Our partnerships with government, community leaders, young people, and businesses are important relationships to preventing crime throughout our community”.

During Crime Prevention Week, the Orangeville Police Service will be visiting several local schools to speak with kids about a variety of crime prevention topics. The service will also offer daily crime prevention and safety tips on topics including fraud and scams, thefts, on-line safety, sexual assault, vandalism, bullying and elder abuse.

On Monday, November 4th, Mayor Sandy Brown signed a proclamation regarding Crime Prevention Week 2019.

On Saturday, November 9th, the service is welcoming members of the public to tour the 390 C Line headquarters from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Certified Child Car Seat Inspectors will also be on hand if you need a car seat inspected. A charity BBQ will be offered for a donation to the Orangeville Food Bank.
