The Homeguard Inspection Program is a community-based crime prevention initiative of our Auxiliary officers (an overview of the Auxiliary Program can be found under Learn.) This allows community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity.
Homeguard won the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police “Victims Assistance Award” in 2012
