Public Engagement

Public consultation for the Police Service Model Review consisted of:

  • stakeholder interviews with 19 internal and external parties
  • an online survey with 758 responses
  • two in-person consultation sessions with approximately 88 attendees
  • multiple other focus groups¬†and presentations

Key themes from the public consultation include: 

  • current police are viewed as a net positive
  • policing needs to meet the needs of equity deserving groups
  • RCMP are sometimes perceived to be bureaucratic
  • general desire for a localized approach to policing
  • policing needs to better understand and incorporate the effect of social factors into their operations
