Divisional Policing Support Unit
A guide to Police Services in Toronto
Welcome to the Toronto Police Service Newcomer Outreach Program!
The Toronto Police Service Newcomer Outreach Program is intended to
provide new immigrants with information on police services in Toronto, information
on how to access those services, and to explain some of their rights and responsibilities
under Canadian law.
On this website you will find lots of information about police services you
can download or order free of charge. Much of the information has been
translated or is being translated.
The Toronto Police Service has many pamphlets about crime prevention and personal
safety. Many of these pamphlets have been translated into different languages.
You can find a complete listing of all our pamphlets and the languages they
are translated into by referring to "Translated
Pamphlet List" , which can be downloaded.
The Service has also prepared a companion
DVD and a booklet, both entitled "A Guide to Police Services
You can find out more about these and see a preview of the DVD by clicking
on the link above.
The DVD “A Guide to Police Services in Toronto ” is now available through
the Toronto Public Library. Copies of the DVD can be borrowed from any branch
of the Toronto Public Library.
Did you know that if you are the victim of a crime like domestic violence or
sexual assault, interpreters are available to help you throughout the
investigation and afterward? The availability of interpreters will be expanded
in the near future, and remember, there are always interpreters available
when you call 9-1-1.
