Toronto Police Services - TPS Links - Automated Notification System

Overview - In support of Community Mobilization efforts, The Toronto Police Service (TPS) is pleased to introduce the TPSlinks system. TPSlinks is community automated notification system that delivers vital information to residents and business owners within the city of Toronto. TPSlinks will utilize sophisticated software by strategically sending information to a selected geographic area made possible through a community member sign-up webpage.

Messages will be prepared and delivered by local Divisional Toronto Police Service officers through voice and text messaging. Message types and user delivery profiles can be tailored to meet the needs and preferences for each registered community member. Community members can choose to change their profile or unsubscribe at anytime.

Types of Messages - TPSlinks will transmit messages using landline and cellular telephone options. The registration page enables community members to create a user profile which will specify the message types that the community member wishes to receive and restrict the types that are not desired.

TPSlinks will send informative messages ranging from city events to safety notifications and emergency incidents. The following are examples of message types that will be delivered:
  • Special Events
  • Community Meetings
  • Road Closures
  • School Lockdowns
  • Critical Incident Notifications
