The Town of Ajax continues to be a committed leader in the ongoing development and support of community safety and well-being in Ajax. For the past 11 years, the Town has led the Partnership-Based Community Safety Strategies alongside the “Partners in Community Safety” committee which consists of representatives of various community organizations that support and are committed to working collaboratively to advance the strategy outcomes in Ajax. As community safety is a complex issue that is ever evolving, it requires collaborative investment by municipal leaders, service providers, community organizations, and residents. By sharing this responsibility, each person and sector plays a role in protecting and promoting healthy outcomes in our community.

The Town has begun dedicated efforts to the development of its new 2019-2022 Community Safety Strategy. This plan is being developed in partnership with the Durham Regional Police Services (West Division), the Town’s Partners in Community Safety, and you!
