We would like thank you for checking in with the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) for the latest on what is happening throughout the region.

The year 2024 is an exciting one for our Service as we celebrate our Golden Jubilee! This significant milestone is an opportunity for us to reflect upon our history and look ahead to the future.

Since its inception on January 1, 1974, HRPS has grown from 205 officers and 45 civilians spread across the former police services of Burlington, Oakville, Milton, and Halton Hills to a more than 1,100-strong organization that ranks among Ontario’s Big 12.

Our mission then, and now, is to ensure we meet the ever-evolving and complex challenges of policing, address the needs of those we serve, and maintain Halton’s longstanding reputation as Canada’s safest large municipality today and for the next 50 years.

If you have not yet had an opportunity to read our most recent Annual Report, we encourage you to do so. The report outlines our ongoing commitment to the residents of Halton region to promote their well-being and to keep their community safe. The success stories contained therein are a testament to the work we undertake each day in support of our Strategic Plan. Under its guidance, our Service strives to be fiscally responsible to taxpayers, responsive to the public, and respectful of the region's dynamic, growing, and inclusive community.

In the meantime, and as always, we encourage you and members of the community to follow us here or on social media (X, Facebook, and Instagram) and to provide your thoughts and feedback, which helps inform and shape our priorities.

In our commitment to policing excellence and to serve and protect all those who call Halton home, we must emphasize that we are here to help. If you are the victim of a crime, we know it takes courage to come forward and report it to police. If and when you do report a crime, please know that our police service and countless community resources are here to support you and anyone else who may be impacted.

On behalf of the entire Halton Regional Police Service, it is always an honour and a pleasure to serve you. We look forward to further engaging with you.
