Community Patrol

Did you know you have a team? No matter where you live or work in the City of Peterborough, Village of Lakefield or Township of Cavan Monaghan, 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 57% criminal clearance rate and 83% violent crime clearance rate is evidence that team policing works.

The heart of our City with a high concentration of commercial and entertainment business.

Team 2
