The Halton Regional Police Service motto, One Vision, One Mission, One Team, is founded on the belief that progressive, world-class policing comes from working in partnership with the people we serve to reduce, deter and prevent crime, and ensure public safety.

Because our uniform officers are the face of policing in Halton Region, we are committed to recruiting, training and developing the talents of well-rounded men and women with passion, integrity and desire to make a difference in people's lives.
