Thank you to all those that attended the Summit on Stopping Small Business Break-Ins hosted by Deputy Mayor Colle in the Council Chamber On March 1st, 2024.

For those that were not able to join us, we were addressed by Mayor Chow, Councillor Colle, Councillor Nunziata, Councillor Moise, Small Business advocate and Councillor Fletcher. A number of subject matter experts spoke regarding some of the initiatives they are undertaking to deal with B&Es, POS Terminal Theft and Crime prevention in general. A number of victims of POS terminal thefts spoke to their experience(s) and the feeling of victimization they experienced above the monetary losses, which in most cases were significant. The Toronto Police Service was well represented and shared their experiences with this issue and the work they are doing with other jurisdictions to best address small business crime and break-ins.
