Community Patrol

Did you know you have a team? No matter where you live or work in the City of Peterborough or Village of Lakefield, a team of officers and a Sergeant regularly patrol your area and dedicate time to preventing crime and enforcing the law there. They learn the area, share information on problems that occur, and work together to solve them. Their commitment to the residents and businesses in the area they patrol means real results. Our 54% criminal clearance rate and 84.2% violent crime clearance rate is evidence that team policing works.
