Orangeville Police recognizes Crime Prevention Week

The Orangeville Police Service is proud to recognize and support Crime Prevention Week which runs from November 4-10, 2018. 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.

“Crime prevention works. When police work with the members of their communities to stop crimes from occurring, everyone wins,” said Chief Wayne Kalinski. “We are proud that Orangeville is among the top 15% of the safest communities in Canada. Community safety and well-being takes hard work and collaboration. We continue to partner with government, community leaders, young people, and businesses to prevent crime throughout our community”.

During Crime Prevention Week the Orangeville Police Service is welcoming members of the public to tour the 390 C Line Headquarters, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Certified Child Car Seat Inspectors will also be on hand during those times if you need a car seat inspected. The service will also offer daily crime prevention and safety tips on a variety of topics including fraud and scams, thefts, on-line safety, sexual assault, vandalism, bullying and elder abuse.

Everyone who lives, works or goes to school in Orangeville deserves to feel safe. Community safety and well-being is a shared responsibility and awareness in your own neighbourhood can help to prevent crime and victimization.
