The Cornwall Community Police Service has joined police services across Ontario in supporting the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) today with the Crime Prevention Campaign aimed at raising public awareness about personal responsibility when it comes to preventing crime.
“Preventing a crime before it happens rather than having to deal with the consequences of crime is always our goal. We are proud to support this campaign and its theme... because we believe in the important role every member of our community plays in preventing crime.” said chief Dan Parkinson.
Ontario police organizations are supporting the OACP’s 2013 Crime Prevention Campaign, which seeks to raise public awareness about the important role individuals play in crime prevention.
The Cornwall Community Police Services is promoting crime prevention and the positive impact on personal and collective public safety when citizens are aware of what they can do to prevent crimes.
The campaign focuses on a broad range of issues that impact citizens across the province: on-line fraud, identification theft and other cybercrimes, auto theft, break-and-enters, and many more. These types of crimes can victimize anyone, anywhere. A crime prevention booklet is being made available to the public though police services which contains helpful crime prevention tips and information. For more information on crime prevention programs and safety tips go to the Cornwall Community Police Service website at www.cornwallpolice.com.
“Our officers work hard with members of the community, crime prevention organizations, business, schools, and governments to promote crime prevention as a crime fighting solution,” said Constable Melanie Labelle. “This campaign is an invitation for everyone to join their police service to make our community safe.
