The Ottawa Police Service works in partnership with the community to ensure that people's rights, lives and property are secure. We offer residents and business owners crime prevention tips through pamphlets, videos, presentations and by providing free home security inspections. You can help us by becoming involved in our programs and developing your own awareness on how to prevent or deter crime in your area.
