The nature of law enforcement has changed over the last decade with the introduction of social media. The Halton Regional Police is making strides in connecting with communities through platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

In addition to sharing news releases on police investigations, suspect descriptions and enforcement initiatives, social media provides the police a resource to connect and engage with people of all ages.

The social media platforms we use, such as Facebook and Twitter, provides the opportunity for the police to chat and converse with the public about important topics and helps build trusting relationships with the communities in which we serve.

We are always looking to improve and build on our community engagement and are adding a new social media platform to our repertoire.

Welcome to Periscope with the Halton Regional Police.

Periscope is a live video streaming platform/app connected to Twitter that allows the user to transmit a live video recording and allows the viewer to comment and ask
