Halton Police Announce "Project Safe Start" for 2014

Halton Regional Police Service Logo

On Monday September 1st the Halton Regional Police Service will once again be kicking off our annual traffic safety initiative; “Project Safe Start”.

This is the eighth year Halton Police have conducted this campaign which centres on education, awareness and high-visibility enforcement of traffic laws in and around school zones. The campaign is run in conjunction within the first two weeks that Halton school children return to classes. This year’s campaign will run until September 13th.

Officers will be using a multi-faceted approach to remind motorists to be on alert for increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic in and around school zones as well as paying attention to crossing guards. Focused enforcement will be on speeders, aggressive drivers, and the use of hand held devices while driving. Seatbelt compliance will also be strictly enforced.

Frontline officers, District Response officers, Education Services officers, High School Liaison officers as well as senior Command officers will all be taking part in this campaign. On Monday September 8th Senior Officers, Divisional Commanders and Police Executive officers will participate in the “All Hands on Deck” component of Project Safe Start. A list of locations where these Senior officers will be conducting their specific enforcement efforts will be issued closer to that date.

This high visibility enforcement and education campaign will positively affect driver behaviour around school zones throughout the year and have overall lasting safety benefits to members of the community.

Halton residents have ranked traffic as their #1 policing priority in previous surveys. The Halton Regional Police Service recognizes this concern and engages in various campaigns throughout the year to educate the motoring public on, and enforcing the Highway Traffic Act and other traffic related legislation.

Pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and the police all play an integral role in ensuring safer roads within Halton Region.

Halton Hills Hydro receives an “A” rating in customer satisfaction survey

Halton Hills Hydro Logo

Halton Hills Hydro is pleased to report that 90 per cent of their customers are very or fairly satisfied with the service they are receiving from their local electricity utility.

The company participated in a survey that rated customer satisfaction levels in a number of areas and comparing them against other utilities in Ontario and across Canada.

Halton Hills Hydro first participated in the “Utility Pulse” survey in 2011 and is pleased to report consistent positive results.

“The last three years have been challenging ones for our customers. The energy industry as a whole has been in the political spotlight with concerns over costs and spending. Our customers also faced extended power outages as a result of the devastating Ice Storm in December of 2013. Despite these factors, our customers continue to view the utility as a trusted and respected company in the community” said Art Skidmore, President & CEO of Halton Hills Hydro. “We thank all of our customers who participated in the survey. The results provide us with valuable information to further enhance our service to the community”

While customers everywhere would like to see lower rates, Halton Hills Hydro customers have given the utility a 75 per cent satisfaction rating for delivering excellent value for the price, an increase of 10 per cent compared to three years ago.

Halton Hills Hydro is seen as a leader in promoting energy conservation, in dealing professionally with customer’s concerns and in providing information to help customers reduce their electricity costs. The utility strives for ongoing operational excellence and is proud to be a trusted, valued member of the community.
