Peel Regional Police is committed to our Vision of 'A Safer Community Together'. Everything we do is driven by our Mission, Vision and Values and we pride ourselves in being accountable to our community. We are the third largest police service in Ontario and the fourth largest municipal police service in Canada. We serve the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga which has almost 1.4 million residents, and the Pearson International Airport which saw an estimated 13.3 million people passed through in 2020. One of our objectives is to address crime through call response, investigations, enforcement, and police visibility. With over 2,000 police officers and almost 900 civilian employees, our solvency rates are some of the highest in the country and our crime rates are below provincial levels.

Peel Regional Police officers are held to a high standard of excellence. While on and off-duty, our officers' conduct is governed by the Police Services Act (PSA) of Ontario. This Act is legislation that applies to all police officers in the province and sets out responsibilities for Police Services and their officers.

Our Code of Ethics provides all of our employees with clear guidelines that establish expectations of their conduct. Some of the highlights include:

  • Upholding the organization's values of trust, respect, understanding, safety and transparency.
  • Carrying out duties within the law.
  • Exercising good judgement.
Equity and Inclusion

We are dedicated to providing an inclusive and equitable police service that our employees and community can be proud of. We ensure our service attracts and retains skilled employees who are reflective of our community. We have also met and exceeded standards set by Excellence Canada, and provided bias-free training programs to inform and educate our employees to recognize their own biases. We also offer a number of services to the public and our employees in multiple languages and accessible formats.

Community Engagement

Our community is at the heart of everything we do which is why we work hard to engage and build partnerships with the public. Community safety can only be achieved together with the community and to ensure we receive input and feedback from distinct parts of the community, we created the Chief's Advisory Committees. To date, these committees include the Black, Chinese, LGBTQ+, Muslim, Sikh and Youth communities and these committees enhance relationships and build trust.

As we work to prevent crime, community initiatives, awareness and educational programs are key. We have a number of proactive youth partnerships.

Our Community Mobilization Teams work with the public to improve safety, wellbeing and develop long-standing trust. These teams attend various events, give community presentations and work with the community on projects to reduce crime.

Our social media accounts support the transfer of information both inside and outside the organization and allow us to constantly communicate with the community.

Our employees also spend numerous hours volunteering and fundraising to assist those in our community who are in need. Since 2006, over $14 million has been raised for various charities, through efforts by Peel Regional Police and community members.

We also regularly survey a random selection of households and businesses throughout Mississauga and Brampton to seek their input into the delivery of police services. The feedback received is important to our strategic planning process and for the development and delivery of policing services and programs.
