Please note that we are not currently accepting members to the Older Adult Strategic Partnership.  Please check back soon.

As described by the World Health Organization, age-friendly communities strive to create an environment which encourages and promotes active aging. More specifically, age friendly communities provide opportunities to optimize health, inclusion, security, and independence. As the older adult community in the Halton Region continues to grow, our police service is committed to working collaboratively with residents in order to maximize community safety and well-being.               

The Halton Regional Police Service respects the wealth of knowledge and life experience possessed by the older adults in our community. Moreover, the Service recognizes the value of gaining further insight into the issues being faced by older adults. 

The Older Adult Strategic Partnership serves as a collaborative partnership between the HRPS and the older adults in our community. Through ongoing consultation, the Older Adult Strategic Partnership will:

  • Advise our Police Service on how our programs and outreach initiatives are impacting older adult residents within the Halton region.
  • Provide insight on how our organization and members can better serve the older adults in our community.
