ABOUT THE JUSTICE LUNCHEON
Safe City Mississauga will be holding the 9th annual Justice Luncheon: Policing in the Region of Peel on June 11th, 2019 at Mississauga Grand Banquet Hall in Mississauga, ON.
The highlight of this event is a state-of-policing address from the Chief of Peel Regional Police. This speech provides a window into the successes and challenges of policing in Peel. Police play a crucial role in keeping our communities safe. However, many of us are not aware of how they do it. Justice Luncheon attendees include police, government representatives, business owners, and community organizations. The event is in keeping with Safe City Mississauga’s goal of sharing knowledge that can be put into practice by community leaders to make our city safer. It also highlights Peel Regional Police’s increasingly prominent focus on crime prevention. Together, Safe City Mississauga and the police are working to stop crime before it starts.
