Welcome to the Safe City Oshawa Partnership
In a 2010 survey of Oshawa residents, people expressed that they considered their safet to be a safe one. The Safe City Oshawa Partnerhip, composed of a diverse group of community stakeholders, aims to maintain that sense of confidence in our neighbourhoods by supporting grass-roots safety strategies. Our commitee members meet on a monthly basis, with the public welcome to attend, and undertakes steps to achieve the goals set out in the Partnership's annual work plan.
Our efforts can range from attending community events with information and practical safety resources you can take away to literally cleaning up the City using our own hands and those of local volunteers. We welcome your input on subjects you feel need attention and encourge you to stay tuned to this website where we will post a wide variety of valuable safety materials and links that help families and individuals.
Keeping our community safet to "live, work, learn and play" requires a community-based approach with every citizen taking part. One should not underestimate how the simpliest actions can have important impacts. For as John F. Kennedy once said "No one made greater a mistake than they who did nothing simply because they could do little."
