  • Foot Patrol

    Foot patrol has been around since the beginning of policing and is still consider a vital and integral part of any police service. All year round, members of the Smiths Falls Police Service actively patrol the town's tourist areas, shopping malls, schoolyards, and downtown streets.

    Foot patrol has been shown to improve the overall feeling of safety within a community and for good reason. The visibility of officers on foot patrol, especially in problem areas is often a strong deterrent to criminal activity. The flip side is that officers on foot can often approach or "sneak up" on suspicious persons and activities.

    Another great benefit of foot patrol is that it helps promote interaction between officers and members of the community that encourages information flow. This information can often enable officers to be proactive with problems before they become crimes.

    It is for these reasons that the Smiths Falls Police Service considers Foot Patrol one of its primary functions and will continue to make it a priority.
