Road Safety Services launched a new driving complaint on line system via the Peel Regional Police website.

The goal in Road Satefty is to streamline all driving complaints through one avenue, the online system. This will enhance their response service and time to all complaints in the region. They are hoping that this will also foster a stronger relationship with the community.

All police driving complaints need to be reported through this avenue, so that PRP can better serve everyone.

If you encounter a wild animal in distress, don’t approach it. Call Mississauga Animal Services at 905-896-5858. Learn more
