The Halton model to community safety and well-being planning is designed to address community challenges through collaboration, prevention and proactive partnerships with community members from health, social services, housing, diversity and faith-based sectors. The Crime Prevention Week videos feature our Service’s many partnerships that address and mitigate risks to ensure community safety and well-being.
The focus of the HRPS policing model has shifted towards a greater, regional approach to community mobilization, with our core philosophy of “One Vision, One Mission, One Team” guiding our efforts. This enhances the Service’s ability to serve the diverse needs of the community by developing programs with our partners.
