Supporting victims of sexual assault and working to arrest sex offenders, prevent child exploitation and stop human trafficking.
All crimes of a sexual nature, regardless of the victim’s gender or age, impacts the community and effects the victim’s quality of life and wellbeing.
The Toronto Police Service Sex Crimes unit was originally created in 1989 to investigate serious and serial sexual offences that were beyond the resources and/or expertise of divisional units. Since that time, the unit has expanded and now incorporates specialized units that are dedicated to the sensitive needs of victims. The Toronto Police Service is dedicated to the wellbeing, care and recovery of all victims of sexually motived crimes.
Public safety is a unit priority. Sex Crimes gratefully acknowledges community and external partnerships that assist the unit in serving the communities of Toronto.
Below are two websites designed to provide resources and help for survivors of sexual assault and human trafficking that were designed in partership with community organizations.
