The Minto Safe Community Committee

The County of Wellington currently has seven active Safe Community Committee groups in Minto, Puslinch, Mapleton, Arthur, Erin, Mount Forest & Centre Wellington. These groups represent the communities within each Township and each has approximately 8-10 enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. The Safe Community Committee groups continue to involve the community through both reactive and proactive Policing strategies. These include the identification of crime, traffic and social order problems, safety and solutions. In the process, through a cooperative spirit, close mutually beneficial ties are formed between police and community and contribute to a safe society.


Purpose:

To act as a liason between the public and police
To listen to saftey concerns and suggestions from residents of Minto Twp.
To work with the Police to come up with positive solutions.
To provide education on safety matters.
To assist with crime prevention strategies.


Meetings

Meetings are held at the Clifford Fire Hall the last Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m.

Safe Community Committee Chair is Don Senek

Community Contact: Todd Pridham (519) 323-3130 todd.pridham@ontario.ca
