Community Plan for Safety & Well-Being 

Community Safety and Well-being (CSWB) plans address the unique safety needs of communities. It is a provincial requirement for every municipality to have a CSWB plan in place. This regional plan identifies local priorities and evidence-based, sustainable solutions. The goal is to look at community assets and gaps to develop strategies that enhance community safety and well-being.

The Community Plan for Safety and Well-being for Lanark County and Smiths Falls has been in place since 2018. A wide range of sectors are represented on a steering committee, including police, social services, health care, education and more. The committee consulted community members and local agencies in the process. The group identified 12 priority risk areas and developed strategies to address them.
