S7 Law Enforcement

Only areas with a white background are considered part of the General Plan.

Public education and outreach is a proactive approach in which the police department engages with the local community. In the above photo the Ontario PD helicopter officers participate in the Ontario safety fair.

Maintaining safety in Ontario’s residential neighborhoods and commercial and industrial districts contributes to the City’s prosperity.  Ontario achieves this through a proactive approach that goes beyond crime suppression to include prevention strategies that engage the community.



Neighborhoods and commercial and industrial districts that are kept safe through a multi-faceted approach of prevention, suppression, community involvement and a system of continuous monitoring.
