Crime Prevention and Safety Programs

Ottawa is regarded by many as one of the safest cities in the world, but that's no reason for people to let their guard down. The Ottawa Police Service will always be available to respond to crime, but we need your active participation to help prevent crime.

The police can't do it alone - we work in partnership with the community to ensure that people's rights, lives and property are safe and secure.

Get informed, get involved, download our App, and make crime prevention part of your everyday life. Together, we can continue to build a safer Ottawa for all. 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:
