2017 Halton Regional Police Service Report

The 2017 Halton Regional Police Service Report reveals that with the additional growth in the Region over the year, HRPS officers responded to over 158,000 requests for service in 2017, an increase of 3.6 per cent over last year, while our percentage of cases closed remained in the 49th percentile (an extremely high level and tremendous accomplishment). 

“Although police play an important role in creating and maintaining a safe community, by no means do we do it alone. It is in our ability to work with you, the public we serve, to not only prevent and report crime but to foster the development of initiatives that benefit us all,” said Stephen Tanner, Chief of Police. “This Annual Report is a testament to how we work in partnership with the communities we serve to ensure Halton remains as safe tomorrow as it is today.”

Other highlights of the 30-page edition include a detailed statistical overview of crime regionally and by district, a summary of operational achievements and major projects, a recap of top news stories, recognition of long-serving and retired members, and work undertaken in support of various community groups.

Halton has retained its distinction as one of Canada’s safest regional municipalities with a population of 100,000 or more.

The 2017 Halton Regional Police Service Report reflects our Community First policing by incorporating the Plan’s principles into the Service’s training, project development and ongoing initiatives. The Service’s four priorities of focus reflect the key concerns of the community, which include mental health and addictions, vulnerable populations, traffic safety and crime prevention. The Halton Regional Police Service’s commitment to collaboratively share responsibility for keeping Halton Region safe is demonstrated throughout the report.
