Security Audits (CPTED)

Crime Prevention Services offers residential and commercial security audits, on a need basis, free of charge. Security audits are designed to identify areas of vulnerability and risk of your home or business, and strategies to minimize those risks.

For residential security audits, you can contact the Community Liaison Officer of your local division. For commercial or corporate audits, you can contact Crime Prevention Services at (905) 453-3311 ext. 4021.

Before you contact us, you can do your own residential assessment.
