Chief's Message 
 
 
Welcome to the Halton Regional Police Service’s website, the cornerstone of our “virtual” presence. In addition to this site, you can also follow us through Twitter or ‘like” us on Facebook.

Public engagement is a vital component of any world-class police service. Part of that engagement includes providing the public we serve with the information they want and need in a readily available, accessible format.

To that end, the majority of visitors to our site want to review current job opportunities within our Service; read about breaking police news; review Halton’s most wanted list or learn how to obtain a security clearance for employment or volunteering.

Some other online features you may find most useful include our online police reporting for certain types of crime, our RoadWatch form to report dangerous drivers, and our crime prevention tips to help you ensure you and your family are less likely to be victims of crime.

Seeking to compliment an officer for a job well done or file a complaint? We always appreciate receiving your feedback on how we are doing.

Please note that this site is not monitored 24/7 and it is important you report anything you see or hear that is unlawful, suspicious or endangers public safety to police. For emergencies, dial 9-1-1 and for non-emergencies, call our main switchboard at 905-825-4777.

As you probably are aware, for the past four years, Halton has been ranked the safest regional municipality in Canada by Maclean’s magazine, and has the lowest crime severity index in the GTA. In fact, our crime rate is at its lowest level since 1974, when we regionalized.

Although police do play an important role in creating and maintaining a safe community, we by no means do it alone. As a valued member of our community, you play a vital role in helping ensure Halton remains as safe tomorrow as it is today.

As Chief of Police, my commitment to you is to ensure that we provide an effective and efficient police service, which is ready and able to meet both current and emerging public safety needs.

Together with the Halton Regional Police Services Board, we are committed to working in partnership with the community to ensure our Service is fiscally responsible for taxpayers, responsive to public input, and is positioned to effectively respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by policing a dynamic, diverse and growing Region.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you enjoy learning more about the Halton Regional Police Service at work in your community.
