In 1829, Sir Robert Peel helped to establish the first modern-day police force in London, England. Peel devised nine principles which later became known as Peel’s Principles. Peel’s most influential outlook for policing is exemplified in the principle which claims:

“the police are the public and the public are the police “Peel’s principle illustrates well the philosophy adopted by the members of the Smiths Falls Police Service. As our motto “Community First“ suggests, the members of the Smiths Falls Police service have taken an active interest in ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our community. After all, not only must we work here, we live here as well!

Police Service Community Programs and Outreach
Listed below are some of the community activities and charity events that we actively organize and/or participate in. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page for the latest news.


Starting out the day right with holiday smile cookies for breakfast for our staff! Smile cookies are in support of Duncan J. Schoular Public School - UCDSB nutritional school program. We do know how important a healthier breakfast is for our youths in schools and are amazed as what all the volunteers do to support this in both our Public and Catholic schools in Smiths Falls. Thank-you Tim Horton's for supporting local charities! 

John's Visit
We would like to say a big thank you to John and his father for stopping by today!
John was involved in an accident this summer and was injured as a result. Constables Travis Robidoux and Aar
on Tompkins attended the accident and checked in on John after being transported to the hospital. We are happy to say that due to the positive interaction Officer's Travis and Aaron had with John, he is now wanting to pursue a career in policing
John had a tour of the police station and he is even more excited about policing now! Thank you again to John and his family for taking the time and letting us know how our officers made a bad situation a little better for John. It truly means a lot to us.
