London Police Service is hosting a series of community safety demonstrations this week for the province's Crime Prevention initiative — the week-long campaign started Sunday and runs until Nov. 11.

"Effective crime prevention starts with strong community partnerships," said Sgt. Brendan Hicks in a release on Sunday, "Working together with the community we serve to identify criminal activity and crime trends is how we, as a police service, help to build a safer community."

The Ontario-wide safety campaign includes police services from across the province and is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.

  • Monday - from 11 to 1 p.m. at White Oaks Mall
  • Tuesday - from 11 to 1 p.m. at Westmount Mall
