Members of Hamilton Niagara Regional Detachment regularly work alongside law enforcement partners in the region. Some of these partners include, Canada Border Services Agency, CN Police, Hamilton Police Service, Niagara Regional Police Service, Ontario Provincial Police, Brantford Police Service, Canada Revenue Agency, Ontario Ministry of Revenue, Six Nations Police Service, United States Homeland Security, United States Customs, and United States Border Patrol.
Because of our proximity to the USA, border integrity is a major component of our duties. Given that the border in our jurisdiction is located entirely within the confines of the Great Lakes, marine patrols are common place and in many instances are conducted in concert with our partners.
The members and staff of the Hamilton Niagara Regional Detachment participate in numerous community activities and events, including Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Racing Against Drugs Crime Prevention Program, attendance at Citizenship Courts and First Nations Liaison.
The Detachment also promotes crime prevention through media releases and educational information sessions for schools and citizens. Several members volunteer their time at area schools with the literacy program; “Running & Reading”.
In addition to serving the community as coaches and volunteers, members are also proud to participate in such programs as the Annual Fire Department/Police Food Drive, in support of local food banks, the Law Enforcement Torch Run, for Special Olympics, and by helping special needs athletes compete in various sporting activities.
