OPP raising awarness about personal responsibility and preventing crimeMonday, February 25, 2013 by: Kate AdamsOPP News Release
The Temiskaming Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have joined police services across Ontario in supporting the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) 2013 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, “Crime Prevention...it Starts With You!”, because we believe in the important role every member of our community plays in preventing crime.” said Inspector Dan Dawson.
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 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, etc. 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.
“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 Inspector Dan Dawson. “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.
