Peel Regional Police have developed two Cargo Theft Crime Prevention resources in an effort to reduce Cargo Crimes within the Peel Region and surrounding GTA. They will be launching both a Cargo Theft Prevention pamphlet and a Cargo Theft Assessment form which will be printed in English, Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu.  

These free resources will be available at each Division and offered to the community in an effort to reduce Cargo Crimes and educate the community. Since Cargo Crimeis not only a Peel Region issue, but rather a GTA/Ontario/Canada wide issue, we have partnered with CN Police, CN, Crime Stoppers, the Ontario Trucking Association (OTA), and the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) in coming together for a Media and Community Awareness Launch on the issue of Cargo Crime and to offer a collaborative message.

For media inquiries, please contact the on-duty Media Relations Officer at (905) 453-2121, ext. 4027.
