Milton Community Policing Committee (MCPC):
The Milton Community Policing Committee’s (MCPC) purpose is to help promote a healthy and safe community by providing a means for residents, business owners, and community groups to communicate their concerns regarding public safety to all levels of government, and to work in a proactive and creative manner to address those concerns.
The committee gives residents the opportunity to voice their concerns about issues such as crime, public health, traffic management, and neighbourhood design, and to play an active role devising community-based strategies to address those issues.
Meetings are open to our local councillors, representatives from the school boards, and members of the Halton Regional Police Service in addition to local residents and business owners.
The committee will respond to and aggressively address issues relevant to the community. The types of problems vary depending on the community but may include:
- The fear of crime
- Crime Prevention programs and strategies
- Public health strategies and programs
- Public safety
- Safety agency support and strategies
- Community conflict resolution
- Social and physical order
- Neighbourhood decay
- Traffic management and/or control.
