February 14, 2013: St. Thomas Police Service is joining other police organizations
across Ontario in supporting the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police's (OACP)
2013 Crime Prevention Campaign.
The campaign's theme - "Crime Prevention...it Starts With You!" - emphasizes the
important role every individual has in protecting themselves against crime.
Crime prevention is not just the responsibility of the police. The best way to prevent
crime is for police to work with individuals, community groups, businesses, schools,
and government on ways to decrease criminal opportunities.
St. Thomas Police Community Service unit can provide homeowners, business owners
and students various solutions to help prevent theft and stay safe. Programs such
as Alcohol, drug and substance abuse, Anti-Bullying Program, R.I.D.E. Programs,
Lock it or Lose it Program, and Elder Abuse Committee are just a few initiatives
that are offered. For a full list of initiatives and contact information please
visit our Web Page www.stps.on.ca.
Anyone interested in having a presentation please contact the Community Service
Office at 519-631-1364.
Crime Preventions tips will be sent out during the week of February 18-22 specifically
targeting Consumer Fraud, Break and Enters and vehicle theft, Elder abuse and Student
