Community Safety Together

Improving and promoting community safety is our highest priority. To do this we address crime proactively, strengthen community engagement and create educational seminars/materials.

The Region of Peel is in the process of developing its Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan. The Ontario government requires that all municipalities prepare and adopt a CSWB Plan by January 1, 2021 (Bill 175 - The Safer Ontario Act).

Peel Regional Police is committed to the safety and well-being of the community we serve with one of the primary focuses being mental health. At the core of our commitment to our Community Safety and Well-Being plan are multi-sectoral collaborative partnerships. In January 2020, we partnered with Canadian Mental Health Association to launch our Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team (MCRRT) program. This collaboration allows us to provide a health response to a health problem.
