Vision Goals and Objectives


  • The Town of Petawawa will be a safe, livable community where citizens can go about their daily activities in an environment without fear, risk of harm or injury.
  • Our community will receive policing-related services that are focused on crime prevention through education and the implementation of appropriate interventions and crime suppression techniques which are based on recognized best practices.
  • All policing- related efforts will be characterized by excellence, innovation and inclusiveness in the scope of delivery and provided by competent and compassionate personnel.

To that end, it is expected that policing services will partner with appropriate resource sectors of the community to work together in a coordinated and collaborative way to promote safety, manage risk, and increase the overall safety of all the Town’s residents and visitors.
