Weston to get police cameras

Weston Road will be getting police cameras over the summer, according to a reader. They will be installed as part of the TAVIS anti-crime strategy that the police are launching in Weston.

Toronto Police held a community meeting on Wednesday to discuss the shift in 12 Division’s boundaries and the TAVIS program. 12 Division will now be patrolling Weston, taking over from 31 Division. Weston had been at the southernmost end of 31 Division’s boundaries. Approximately 26 more officers will be added to 12 Divisions’ roster to cover the increase in area.

The Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS) will bring more than 30 additional officers, on foot and bikes, to Weston for the summer. Closed-circuit TV cameras will also be installed along Weston Road to assist in investigations.

Police will be holding a kickoff barbecue at 5 pm on Thursday, June 16 at Little Avenue Park. Representatives will be there to answer questions and get advice from residents.

Thanks to Brian for the reporting.

  1. That sounds very promising. I’ve lived in the westend, and more specifically in the area, for less than a year. I, more than once, questioned the intelligence of moving here.
    I admit that I have noticed some changes to improve the community. This is reinforcing my belief that with some care, Weston can be what I imagined it was when I decided to move here.

    I feel so much more connected to the area since finding Westonweb. I only found It 2 days ago but it’s made a huge difference to me already.

    1. I’m glad you like the site. Weston is a great neighbourhood, and getting better.

      I’d be grateful if you spread the word about WestonWeb—and if you have any tips, or would like to write an article, you’ll find an appreciate editor.

  2. The next question is where and how many?

    Please tell me this isn’t just traffic cameras to bolster the City’s failing coffers?
