Welcome to MyBEATMybeat is the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service Alert notification service. Our Mission is to promote the safety of citizens and the protection of property, through an appropriate balance of law enforcement, problem solving and crime-prevention initiatives. This is based on the philosophy of community policing that involves working in partnership with citizens and other community stakeholders. In response our Police Service has partnered with the local Emergency Management Division, Trent University Fleming College and Peterborough Transit, who will all have access to broadcast emergency Alerts to their respective audiences. Keeping our communities informed of emergencies and incidents of mutual concern is essential to helping maintain and improve public safety. MyBEAT is designed to heighten community awareness through the delivery of short text messages to your cellular phone or e-mail address. Higher priority Alerts will be delivered promptly while other messages of community interest will be delivered as resources permit. These Alerts will be brief and may refer you to other sources of information. If you have information to provide to the police as a result of an alert please respond to the non-emergency police # 705-876-1122. Only call 911 in the case of an emergency.
