CRIME PREVENTION…IT STARTS WITH YOU!

“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, “Crime Prevention…it Starts With You!”, because we believe in the important role every member of our community plays in preventing crime.” said Chief 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.
The Cornwall Community Police Service Police officers pride themselves in being crime preventers as well as law enforcers. All police services put significant efforts into preventing crimes for a number of reasons: (1) We don’t want anyone to become a victim of crime, (2) We believe that the best crime fighting strategy starts with preventing a crime rather than dealing with the consequences of crime, and (3) Investigating criminal activities requires tremendous use of police resources. Preventing crimes before they happen helps us keep policing costs down in our community
“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.
This OACP campaign is made possible through the support of a number of partners: The Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation, Interact Association, Symantec Canada Inc., TitlePLUS, The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association, Via Rail Canada, Humber College, The Canadian Security Association, Globali.com, Accident Support Services International Ltd., and Canpar.
