South Simcoe Police Service Joins Police Organizations Across Ontario in Launching Crime Prevention Week
Safer Communities, Stronger Ontario
(Innisfil/Bradford, ON) Today, the South Simcoe Police Service kicked off Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from November 7 to 13, 2021. The week-long promotion of crime prevention is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of the Solicitor General, and police services across Ontario.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us the value of ensuring our homes, neighbourhoods, schools, and places of businesses make safety and well-being a priority. Crime prevention is a key ingredient to safer communities. Ontario communities are among the safest in the world, but community safety and well-being takes hard work and collaboration. That’s why the South Simcoe Police Service is proud to partner with the Government of Ontario, local government and community leaders, young people, and businesses to prevent crime throughout our communities during Crime Prevention Week and throughout the year.
