South Simcoe Police Service kicks off Crime Prevention Week

Awareness, Engagement, Prevention

News release – the South Simcoe Police Service

The South Simcoe Police Service today kicked off Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from November 5 to 11, 2023.

The week-long promotion of crime prevention is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of the Solicitor General, and police services across Ontario.

Preventing crimes before they can occur is always the best way to keep our communities safe. Most types of crimes are preventable, and Crime Prevention Week is a great opportunity for Ontarians to think about what they can do to keep their families, neighbourhoods, schools, and workplaces safe from criminal activities.

Ontario communities are among the safest in the world, but community safety and well-being takes hard work and collaboration. That’s why the South Simcoe Police Service is proud to partner with government, community leaders and organizations, young people, and businesses to prevent crime throughout our communities.

Follow along on our social media platforms this week as we highlight the many ways we can raise awareness about Crime Prevention, engage with our residents, and work together to help enhance community safety.
