The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

THE WEEK OF NOVEM­BER 5-11 is Crime Preven­tion Week in On­tario. The On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice will place em­pha­sis on crime preven­tion and com­mu­nity safety and well-be­ing.

This year’s theme for Crime Preven­tion Week is “Build­ing Safer Com­mu­ni­ties To­gether.” The theme en­cour­ages com­mu­nity safety and well-be­ing as a shared re­spon­si­bil­ity, in­clud­ing the en­gage­ment of multi-sec­tor part­ners at a lo­cal level, po­lice re­port.

In sup­port of Crime Preven­tion Week the OPP is launch­ing a new part­ner­ship that will en­able OPP of­fi­cers to con­tinue the OPP Com­mu­nity Bear Pro­gram.

The OPP Com­mu­nity Bear Pro­gram en­ables of­fi­cers to pro­vide re­as­sur­ance and com­fort to our youngest vic­tims, which be­gins the process of re­build­ing their sense of safety and se­cu­rity. The Com­mu­nity Bear Pro­gram fo­cuses on how proac­tive mea­sures sup­port crime preven­tion. The in­ter- ac­tion be­tween our of­fi­cers and chil­dren, as well as part­ner­ships with com­mu­nity agen­cies, ad­dress the im­por­tance of early in­ter­ven­tion.

“Crime Preven­tion Week 2017 pro­motes work­ing to­gether to im­prove com­mu­nity safety and well-be­ing for all. The OPP con­tin­ues to en­cour­age ev­ery­one to cre­ate and strengthen part­ner­ships to work to­ward safer and health­ier com­mu­ni­ties,” said OPP Insp. Robyn MacEach­ern of com­mu­nity safety ser­vices.
