Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is pleased to participate in Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from November 7,  2021, to November 13, 2021.

The week-long promotion of crime prevention, themed ‘Safer Communities, Stronger Ontario,’ 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 Region. Throughout the week we will be sharing fraud awareness videos that can be viewed and shared with family, friends, businesses and organizations. We will also be offering cyber safety tips to help protect your property from break and enters.  

“We all have a part to play in crime prevention and it’s important for people to contact us when they see or suspect crime in their neighbourhoods,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “Being informed of crime trends allows us to proactively patrol neighbourhoods in efforts to reduce crime and keep communities safe.”

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 Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. For crime prevention tips and additional safety information visit www.wrps.on.ca.
