Rama Police Service 2012 - 2014 Strategic Plan
In 2011, we initiated a comprehensive process of consultation and analysis toward the development
of a 2012–2014 Strategic Plan for the Rama Police Service. This plan is inclusive of the valuable perspectives of our members, community, partners and stakeholders. By planning for the future we will keep Rama Police Service focussed along a path of self-determination.
This plan reinforces our commitment to our vision of… A safe community protected and policed with honour and respect. The priorities that emerged provide a proactive and holistic approach to community safety. Rama Police Service recognizes that the responsibility for safety, security and reduced victimization within our community is a shared one. Fundamental to this concept is our continued efforts to maintain and establish respectful relationships.
As a strong sustainable First Nation Police Service we will continue to uphold the laws of our land according to our guiding principles.

Police Week May 13th to 19th, 2012
Published on May 15, 2012
Police Week is May 13th to May 19th 2012 and this year's theme is "Leading the Way to a Safer Tomorrow". Police Week is celebrated around this time every year in Ontario to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day which is recognized internationally on May 15th. Police Week is an annual event dedicated to promoting Crime Prevention and awareness of Policing Services within the Community.
One initiative the Rama Police Service has undertaken is the "Lock it or Lose it" program. Our officers have been on foot patrol this week checking vehicles to ensure that they are locked and have valuables safely stored out of view or in the trunk of their car. The pamphlets are left on the car as a friendly reminder to "Lock it or Lose it" and a check list is filled out to remind owners if their valuables were visible or if their vehicle was not deemed a potential target for theft. Overall, the results have been favorable but people are still leaving GPS units, luggage, purses and cell phones out in the open rather than safely locked in the trunk of their vehicles.
