Have Your Say about Peel Police

Posted On Wednesday September 15, 2021

 Police inviting public feedback

Public opinion is needed to influence change. Your input, experiences, and perceptions are valued.

The survey is open from now until Thursday, September 30, 2021. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. All responses will remain confidential and anonymous. Results will be reported as a whole and not linked to any individual. 

In our continuous efforts to identify and address systemic racism, the Peel Regional Police, the Peel Police Services Board, and the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) have collaborated to develop a survey to gather community input on experiences with and perceptions of the Peel Regional Police.

We hope the results of this survey will give us a thorough understanding of the experience Peel residents have with the police, which will better enable us to implement remedies. “Peel Region has an engaged diverse community, and Peel Regional Police and Peel Police Services Board are committed to taking a leadership role among all police agencies in Ontario in addressing and overcoming systemic racism in policing,” said Deputy Chief Anthony Odoardi. 

“As part of our commitment to the OHRC Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the residents of Peel to address systemic racism in policing, the Peel Police Services Board and Peel Police recognize that robust community engagement and consultation is fundamental to the success of this project. We have to learn from the lived experiences of the communities most impacted by systemic racism to get this right and develop real solutions that ensure the safety and dignity of all families in Peel,” said Ahmad Attia, Chair, Peel Police Services Board.

A report with the survey findings will be issued in fall 2021.

A link to the survey can be found here and on the Peel Regional Police website and the Ontario Human Rights Commission website.
