During last week’s annual IACP conference, Halton Regional Police Service was presented with the 2017 IACP/Cisco Community Policing Award. The agency was recognized for implementing a regional community mobilization model designed to address various issues and challenges through collaboration, prevention, and partnerships.
Parts of Halton Regional Police Service’s model are designed to pair police officers and mental health professionals in an approach that encourages assessment and treatment for individuals with mental health issues and cognitive disorders.
In 2016, Halton Regional Police Service was named a Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Award honoree for its innovative big data initiatives. That same year, Deputy Chief Nishan ‘Nish’ Duraiappah received the Governor General’s Order of Merit of the Police Forces for his exceptional leadership and tireless community advocacy. Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure also presented Halton Regional Police Service with an Icon Award, our highest customer award, for the police service’s visionary use of software to significantly benefit its citizens and community.
I would like to say, “congratulations” to Halton Regional Police Service for being honored and recognized again for its community-focused approach to law enforcement. Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure is proud to call Halton our partner.
