Crime Prevention Week

Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is pleased to participate in Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from November 5, 2023, to November 11, 2023.

The week-long promotion of crime prevention, themed ‘Awareness, Engagement, Prevention,’ is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and all police services across Ontario.

Our goal during Crime Prevention Week is to educate the community on crime trends that are affecting our communities throughout the Region of Waterloo. Throughout the week we will be safety tips and promoting awareness of ongoing crime trends throughout the Region of Waterloo.

 “As a community, we all have a part to play in crime prevention and we encourage all residents to contact us if they see or suspect crime in their neighbourhoods,” said Mark Crowell, Chief of Police. “When incidents are reported to police, we can proactively track trends, identify suspects to solve investigations, and reduce crime.”

Anyone who witnesses a crime in-progress is encouraged to call 9-1-1 immediately.

For any non-emergency incidents, the public is encouraged to call 519-570-9777 or report online at: https://www.wrps.on.ca/en/services-reporting/online-reporting-.aspx. Individuals who do not wish to be identified can call Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477, where information can be provided anonymously.

The WRPS social media campaign will be featured on X, Facebook, and Instagram.
