Community Safety

"Making a Safe Community? Safer" was identified by residents as a strategic priority in the 2007-2010 Town of Ajax Strategic Plan. Using a partnership-based approach, a Community Safety Strategy  was developed to enhance community safety. In addition, the process was supported by a broader Steering Committee of community organizations and agencies, including the police and schools
