Crime Prevention Week November 4-10 2018 - Monday, November 5
Crime Prevention Week provides an opportunity for police services to showcase examples where the police and community partners are effectively working together to identify and address local risks that can lead to crime and victimization.
This year’s provincial theme is “Crime Prevention: Help Us Help You”. It emphasizes the importance of the police working with community partners from a variety of sectors, as well as the public, to develop programs and strategies that address local crime and complex social issues on a sustainable basis. It is through these collaborative efforts that your community can achieve the ideal state where everyone is safe, has a sense of belonging, and where individuals and families are able to meet their needs for education, health care, food, housing, income, and social and cultural expression.
It’s important that our residents report crimes and community concerns to Kingston Police, so that we can dedicate resources efficiently and effectively to address the most common concerns and issues. To make it easier and more convenient for Kingston residents to make these reports, the Kingston Police website has an online reporting system that accepts several different types of reports including:
- Community complaints
- Counterfeit currency
- Damage to vehicle
- Harassing phone call
- Identity theft
- Lost property
- Theft from vehicle
- Traffic complaint
Beyond taking reports the online system also has a vulnerable person registry to enhance the safety of vulnerable individuals living within our community, while providing information to assist officers in communicating with, attending a residence of, or dealing with an emergency involving a vulnerable person (https://www.kingstonpolice.ca/services-resources/online-vulnerable-person/).
Our online reporting system can be accessed 24/7 via computer or smartphone. https://www.kingstonpolice.ca/services-resources/online-report/
