Crime Prevention Week 2017 – Join us for Coffee with a Cop!

This year’s Crime Prevention Week is taking place from November 5 to 11, 2017. The theme for this year’s Crime Prevention Week is Building Safer Communities Together.

The week-long promotion of crime prevention is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and all police services across Ontario.

As part of Crime Prevention Week, on Wednesday November 8, 2017 the Peterborough Police Service is hosting a Coffee & Cops drop-in at the Whistle Stop Café, located at 141 Charlotte Street in Peterborough. The drop-in runs from 10 a.m. until noon. During the session members of the community are invited to stop by the Café to have a coffee, meet our Community Services officers, ask questions about our Service and programming and provide feedback.

During Coffee and Cops, Fresh Radio 100.5FM is doing its weekly live on Facebook show “Whistle Stop Wednesday” that will feature Peterborough Police Community Services Constable Andrew Hatton. #WhistleStopWednesday

Also during the week our Service will be promoting crime prevention messaging in the community and on social media focusing on crime prevention as a shared responsibility in our community.

“Everyone has a role to play in preventing crime and helping to ensure the communities of Peterborough, Lakefield and Cavan Monaghan are thriving and welcoming places to live, work, and play,” says Peterborough Police Chief Murray Rodd.

“During this week we encourage everyone to take a moment to think about how they can protect themselves, their families, neighbours and workplaces from crime. Crime prevention involves all of us working together to make our homes, neighbourhoods and workplaces safe and healthy.
