Speaking to members of the business community, residents and local dignitaries, Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans highlighted how police and the public can work together to prevent crime in her keynote at Safe City Mississauga’s annual Justice Luncheon.
“Crime rates are down, which is a great thing. However the complexity of crime and the workload for police services has gone up,” said Chief Evans. “Our partnership with organizations, such as Safe City Mississauga, provides the police with the opportunity to work with residents in a proactive manner. “Chief Evans emphasized the importance of working with the community through agencies like Safe City Mississauga.
First launched in 2011, the Justice Luncheon is an annual fundraiser, which provides community leaders the chance to hear the Chief of Police Regional Police speak on the successes and challenges of policing in Peel. This is a unique experience that only the Justice Luncheon can provide to attendees. This is also a great networking opportunity for police, government officials and community leaders as it provides a venue to collaborate and build community partnerships that will assist in creating a crime – free Mississauga together.
“Based on the 2013 Safest City Report, Mississauga remains the safest largest city per 100,000 population for the 15th consecutive year. This recognition and community impact was only made possible through coordinated efforts with Peel Regional Police, our partners, our funders, and of course our incredible group of Board of Directors, staff and volunteers,” said Ralph Hunter, president of Safe City Mississauga.
