Over the course of the summer months Halton Regional Police officers from #2 District in Oakville will be stepping up their patrols of town parks in order to reduce illegal activity including drug and alcohol use.

Traditionally, summer time leads to increased illegal activity in the public parks. A community survey was released in November 2012, showing that one of the major issues was community safety in public parks. During daylight hours, 97% of respondents felt safe in public parks, but that number dropped to 67% after dark.

Project Nightwatch will be commenced on June 18th and run throughout the summer. Officers will be conducting patrol in parks throughout Oakville in both uniform and plainclothes. Police will be targeting individuals consuming both alcohol and drugs, as well as enforcing Town of Oakville By Laws and other criminal and provincial offences. The intent is to eliminate drug and alcohol consumption and the crime associated with them.

The Halton Regional Police Service is committed to keeping our community safe.
