Halton Regional Police have increased their patrols in Oakville parks and trails in efforts to ensure they are safe and clean for public use.
Between April 20 and June 26, 2015, the Oakville Community Mobilization Bureau (CMB) conducted “Project Trailblazer”. This project focused on addressing drug use and associated criminality that took place in the parks and trail systems in the Town of Oakville.
At the conclusion of the project, 23 people were arrested, and a total of 35 criminal charges had been laid (including 6 drug related charges).
Over the next few months, the Community Mobilization Bureau will remain committed to maintaining safe and crime free parks and trails so everyone can enjoy.
If you happen to locate property damage, graffiti, discarded materials such as furniture or suspect that a particular area of a park or trail system is being utilized for ongoing criminal activity, please report this information to the Oakville CMB through the e-mail address: OakvilleParksProject@haltonpolice.ca.
This e-mail address is not monitored 24/7 and is not an emergency reporting option. If a member of the public witnesses a suspicious or criminal act in a public park or trail system, please dial 9-1-1 and report it directly to the Halton Regional Police Service so officers can respond immediately.
Anyone with information can also call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
