Traffic, Road & Community Safety
The Halton Regional Police Service operate a number of programs which actively involve residents in educating and reporting traffic concerns:
- Drive SAFE (Safety Awareness for Everyone) Roads Partnership - Town and Police staff work hard to identify, verify and risk assess traffic concerns, be they citizen complaints or through police observation. Officers from Georgetown Police station are tasked to conduct robust enforcement at those locations which have been deemed moderate to high risk. These locations receive targeted enforcement for a period of one month in an effort to modify driver behaviour through enforcement and education.
- Project Rural Impact- Officers address rural speeding concerns at specific locations within the rural community of Halton Hills. This takes the form of bi annual enforcement blitzes led by the District Response Unit and supported by platoon officers.
- Canada Road Safety Week - Georgetown officers target the 4 high risk driver behaviours (Impaired driving/Aggressive Driving/Distracted Driving/Seatbelt noncompliance) during Canada's Road Safety Week in May. This is a "All Hands on Deck" approach and leads to one of the most significant enforcement efforts within the province.
- Ride SAFE (Safety Awareness for Everyone) Halton - A motor cycle safe riding awareness campaign to be complimented by motor cycle enforcement along rural routes in Halton Hills. New warning signs have been designed and purchased by the Town to be installed along a popular high risk route.
- Project ERASE (Eradicate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere) - Street racing is a very dangerous activity. To combat this officers from Milton and Georgetown have developed partnerships with other police agencies within the GTA to target this driving behaviour. It will not be tolerated within our community.
- All officers are TRAFFIC officers – Police in Halton Hills understand that aggressive driving is a concern for all residents and all officers are expected to play their part in helping to make the roads as safe as possible. Residents can also submit Traffic Complaints and Road Watch reports online.
For further information on any of these programs, or to report a speeding concern, please contact the Halton Regional Police at 905-825-4747.
The Town of Halton Hills has been designated as a Safe Community through Parachute, a national charitable organization dedicated to an injury-free Canada with Canadians living long lives to the fullest.
Being designated a Safe Community is Halton Hills’s affirmation of, and testament to, our community’s aspiration to create a safer life for all citizens. The official designation of a municipality as a Safe Community indicates a publicly articulated commitment to work towards a safer community for all residents in Halton Hills.
