Waterloo Regional Police members partake in various events throughout the year which offer an opportunity to connect with our community and join together as an organization. On an individual and group basis, combined, police members have contributed countless volunteer hours and have helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of local charities or worthy causes. It is our pleasure to contribute to many community groups and non-profit organizations in an effort to help others and give back.
As a Service, organizationally we also make an effort throughout the year to promote awareness of ongoing or current crime trends and safety information in order to prevent crime and better protect those we serve. Education is at the core of what we do and we focus much of our efforts on sharing information and providing guidance to the public.
This section of the Annual Report provides a sample of some of the events and awareness campaigns of 2014. It also includes a report on formal community correspondences.
