Increased Awareness and Reporting
The Toronto Police Service – as a member of the Integrated Security Unit – has been planning for the G8-G20
For both Summits, the RCMP is the lead agency – their primary function is to plan for the safety and security of
Internationally Protected Persons.
The Toronto Police Service is supporting the RCMP to ensure the safety and security of the Summit delegates and
However, we are equally concerned about the safety and security of business owners, residents and people who
work and visit the downtown area.
You are an important community partner and you can help us with our planning by asking your staff to be alert and
vigilant. For instance, ask employees to:
Report to your security officers and the Toronto Police Service any suspicious persons found in the “staff
only” areas of downtown locations,
Report to your security officers and the Toronto Police Service any suspicious activity that could be of
potential concern such as suspicious photography in or around the work place; suspicious packages;
insecure doors; false alarms or false emergency calls,
Report to your security officers and the Toronto Police Service any lost or missing employee
An increased sense of awareness and reporting will assist us as we plan for a safe and secure event.
