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 have collaborated to develop a survey to gather community input on experiences with and perceptions of the Peel Regional Police. We hope that 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.

A report with the survey findings will be issued end of Fall 2021.

FAQs - Community Survey

What is the purpose of the survey?

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

Why should I take the survey?

It’s an opportunity to share your experiences and perspectives so that PRP can better understand how to improve our service delivery.

How was the survey developed?

The survey is a collaboration between PRP, PPSB and the OHRC. It builds on the work that is currently underway to identify and address systemic racism in policing.

Why is Peel Police issuing this survey? 

The Peel Regional Police (PRP), the Peel Police Services Board (PPSB) and the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing to develop and implement legally binding remedies to identify and address systemic racism in policing, promote transparency and accountability, and enhance Black, other racialized and Indigenous communities’ trust in policing throughout Peel Region.

Within the scope of the MOU, the OHRC is providing human rights guidance to the PRP and PPSB on our multi-year human rights organizational change project, named the Human Rights Project.

As one of the steps in engaging with communities, the PRP and the PPSB in collaboration with the OHRC is issuing this survey.

How will the data collected from the survey be used? 

The data will be anonymized and reviewed separately by the PRP, independent data experts and the OHRC to look for insights and/or patterns that will inform PRP’s efforts to eliminate systemic racism.

Is this survey part of the memorandum with the OHRC?

The survey is a part of PRP’s commitment under the memorandum with the OHRC to identify and address systemic racism in Peel policing. The parties recognize that it is essential to hear from and work with Black, other racialized and Indigenous communities and allies, to consider appropriate ways to address systemic racism in policing in Peel Region.

When will we know the results of the survey? 

The results of the survey will be available end of fall.

Why is the survey only available online? 

A web-based survey was selected to reach a broader cross section of our diverse community.
