Dear editor:

On behalf of the members of the Shelburne Police Service, it is my pleasure to present our 2014 Annual Report. We are proud to provide our community with information and perspective into the many ways in which we serve the public each day via this report.

I wish to provide sincere thanks to all members of the Shelburne Police Service for their professional commitment to our community; the Shelburne Police Service Board for enabling our police service to deliver top quality policing; and the citizens of Shelburne, for your support and for allowing us the opportunity to serve you. The positive relationship we share with the community is key in the many successes we have experienced over this past year and indeed through our 135 years of service.

Thank you!

You will find through this report that we have continued to carry out our duties with fiscal responsibility. At the same time, we have continued to experience high clearance rates for crime as well as a reduction in crimes of violence. We have also continued to be proactive in addressing impaired driving and traffic offences in an effort to keep our roads safe. With an overarching goal of meeting the various needs of victims of crime, we have maintained the strong collaborative partnerships we have worked hard to develop over the years with our fellow community service providers. With a view to instilling an openness to community policing into the next generation, we have proudly continued to connect regularly with the young people in our community through various community service programs.

Policing is a complex role in any community, and has unique complexities in a community of our size.

As professionals, as well as community members ourselves, our officers put significant effort into fulfilling their role of law enforcement and prevention in as compassionate and as respectful a manner as possible. I remain exceptionally proud of our team of officers and our civilian members. We are pleased to be here for you should you require our services and are honoured to do our part in ensuring that Shelburne remains a safe place to live, work and play.

Kent Moore

Chief of Police
