RADIUS Child & Youth Service Fundraising Gala 2018

The Holiday Season is here! With the tidings of comfort and joy come the pressures of family, shopping, traffic, travel, entertaining, and finances. As a result of these “stressors”, The Halton Regional Police Service often experiences an increase in frequency or seriousness of specific calls for service during the months of December and January. An increase in opportunity for criminals to victimize can lead to an increase in criminal activity. In an effort to support our continued community safety police will be proactively focusing on these areas through a series of focused projects.

Project H.O.L.I.D.A.Y. will run from December 1, 2014 to January 31st, 2015.

Patrol officers, officers in specialized units, criminal investigators and community partners will be working together focused on the following areas:

High Enforcement on Repeat Offenders
An enhanced focus on recidivism through enforcement of offender release conditions

Organized Retail Crime/Property Crime Thefts from Vehicles & Residential Break and Enters: Increased levels of visible/plain clothes police, Partnered work between Police and Retail Representatives (Loss Prevention) combined with Education, Strategic Deployment, Enhanced Investigative Strategies and devotion of additional investigative resources.

Links to Services/Mental Health
Emphasis on intervention prior to crisis through Crisis Outreach And Support (COAST)

Impaired Driving
See Alcohol Related Issues

Domestic Incidents
Enhanced focus on intervention and support.

Alcohol Related Issues
Strategic co-ordination of holiday ride program with other projects focused on alcohol related crimes

Youth Issues

The Halton Regional Police Service would like to remind our community to focus on self-care over the holidays. Don’t abandon good habits that help keep you and your family healthy and safe. Please see our Safety and Security Tips page for helpful tips.
