On January 1st, 2011, New Glasgow Regional Police assumed responsibility for policing in the Town of Trenton under a sale of service agreement between the two towns. We are pleased with the level of service delivery we are able to provide all citizens to make our communities safer.
The New Glasgow Regional Police Service takes pride in being a community-based police service. Community policing is not a particular program or a collection of programs, such as traffic law enforcement, drug enforcement and crime prevention. It is a philosophy of policing and a method of service delivery - a "mind-set" which forms the basis for the delivery of all police services.
