Community Safety and Well-Being in Halton: A Plan for Collaboration and Action

Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service have developed a plan to enhance how we collaborate with community partners on issues that impact safety and well-being in Halton.

In 2017, Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service introduced a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The Plan sets out how we work with community partners to improve the safety, health and well-being of Halton residents.

Community input

The community helped to shape the plan and focus on key issues. More than 500 people answered our survey or came out to public meetings held in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.

Who leads the plan?

Health and safety leaders from across the community came together to create the Plan:

  • Halton Region
  • Halton Regional Police Service
  • Local Health Integration Networks
  • Local hospitals
  • Local boards of education
  • Local municipalities

This group and specific Action Tables (working groups) continue to work with the community to identify key issues and find the right solutions.
