Newcomer Outreach

Introduction

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 in Toronto". 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.
