Policing Our Region

York Regional Police has the responsibility of ensuring the safety and security of citizens across the region.

We are constantly adapting to the evolving requirements of policing in our fast-growing and diverse community. To develop an effective plan for the future, York Regional Police continuously analyzes available crime data, the internal environment and external social and demographic factors. These influences directly impact the way York Regional Police provides service to our community as we develop a roadmap for 2020 to 2022.
