Brampton and Mississauga saw a jump in crime in 2018 and to deal with the problem Peel Regional Police is requesting more officers on the streets across the region.

Crime in the region has been increasing at a higher rate since 2015, which often happens in a growing population. But 2018 was a particularly violent year for both cities, with over 100 shootings and 27 murders, which was a record-breaking high.

So what will it take to combat the violence? Peel Police says adding more officers to the roads is a place to start. The force is requesting a budget for 55 new officers in 2019.

Outgoing Chief Jennifer Evans told the Police Services Board that the new officers would help address the issue of public safety, better handle the demand and take some workload pressures off of current officers.

Peel Police is also looking to grow in other ways to keep up with the ballooning population. In 2018 there was a 17 per cent increase in service calls that required immediate assistance. The force will be looking to add 10 new dispatchers this year to keep up with the need.
