Proactive Policing in your Community
The St.Thomas Police Service advocates proactive policing and actively promotes the concepts of community involvement in crime prevention. By maintaining effective, open lines of communication between the Police Service and our citizens, we are able to better inform the public about timely issues of concern in our community. Communication also promotes community involvement in crime prevention programs and expands our educational initiatives.
The mandate of the Crime Prevention officer, is to provide support to the front line officers through the promotion and expansion of crime prevention initiatives. Through daily contact with the local media, the Crime Prevention officer provides information to the public about current police activities, criminal trends, proactive crime prevention techniques and our community policing initiatives.
