Po­lice tak­ing part in Crime Pre­ven­tion Week

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

WATER­LOO RE­GIONAL PO­LICE ARE tak­ing part this week in On­tario’s an­nual Crime Pre­ven­tion Week, which runs un­til Novem­ber 10. The week­long pro­mo­tion of crime pre­ven­tion is sup­ported by the On­tario As­so­ci­a­tion of Chiefs of Po­lice (OACP), the Min­istry of Com­mu­nity Safety and Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices, and all po­lice ser­vices across On­tario.

This week, Water­loo Re­gional Po­lice will be work­ing with gov­ern­ment, com­mu­nity groups and so­cial ser­vice providers to pro­mote crime pre­ven­tion as a shared re­spon­si­bil­ity in our com­mu­nity and to high­light the im­por­tance of crime pre­ven­tion as a means to achiev­ing safer and health­ier com­mu­ni­ties for ev­ery res­i­dent, the de­part­ment said in a re­lease.

This year’s theme for Crime Pre­ven­tion Week is Crime Pre­ven­tion: Help Us Help You. Through­out the week, Water­loo Re­gional Po­lice will be fo­cus­ing on how the com­mu­nity can get in­volved and help pre­vent cer­tain types of crimes, in­clud­ing theft, break and en­ter and on­line fraud.

“Crime pre­ven­tion in­volves each and ev­ery one of us work­ing to­gether to make our com­mu­nity safe,” said Bryan Larkin, chief of po­lice. “We want all com­mu­nity mem­bers to be proac­tive and think about how they can help pro­tect them­selves and their fam­i­lies from crime. By work­ing to­gether, we can help en­sure the well­ness and safety of our en­tire com­mu­nity.”
