Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) The Ontario Provincial Police, Peterborough County Detachment supports the program Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) which is a volunteer community-based police program designed to focus on crime prevention  specifically targeted at reducing crimes against seniors in Peterborough County. During the past three years, senior volunteers and the OPP have been educating other seniors across Ontario and providing them with the tools and resources to enhance their safety and protection. Salt offers a peer to peer approach where seniors volunteers present, in collaboration with the O.P.P., information to their peers on crime prevention initiatives.

More information about the SALT program can be found through the Ontario Provincial Police, Peterborough County Detachment, 705-742-0401 or through the North Kawartha Community Policing, 705-656-4445 extension 221.
