Safety and Crime Prevention

The Region of Waterloo is committed to improving community safety. We work with community members, police and all levels of government to reduce and prevent crime. Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility. Together, we can make a difference.


Good neighbourhoods make our communities safer, friendlier and more livable. When people get to know their neighbours, they are more likely to care about the well-being of their neighbourhood.

Violence Prevention

Violence can take many forms, from assault to neglect. It has serious impacts on individuals and society. Violence can be prevented when communities work together to address its root causes.
