Police Week in Ontario is an annual event dedicated to promoting crime prevention, recognition, and awareness of police services in the community. It is also an opportunity to commend current police officers for their dedication and commitment in keeping our communities safe.

This year, Sunday, May 13, 2018, through Saturday, May 19, 2018 is designated Police Week in Ontario. The theme for this year is "Celebrating Policing and Community Partnerships." It supports a collaborative approach towards safer and healthier communities in Ontario, while also recognizing the important role of the police in helping to achieve that goal.
