Halton Regional Police Service has released its 2015 Annual Report to the public and community partners in Halton Region today. The online-only edition is available on the Service’s website.
This year’s report reveals that 2015 was a tremendously successful year. Whether through major projects, technological innovations or our day to day work, our more than 1,000 uniform and civilian members continuously deliver the very highest quality of policing. This year was a also a year of renewal: two new Deputy Chiefs were appointed by the Police Services Board, construction began on the new police headquarters building and new collaborative partnerships were established with community members.
The 2015 overall crime rate is the lowest since regionalization in 1974.
“Our Service is proud to continue to serve, protect and promote a safe community, and it shows – according to the data released by Statistics Canada, Halton continues to have the lowest crime rate of all large municipalities in Canada,” said Chief Tanner. “The Annual Report showcases our integrated and innovative approach to policing in which we aim to go beyond ‘crime fighting’ to focus on the much larger goal of maximum community safety and well-being.”
