  Message from the Chief, Peel Regional Police

It is my pleasure to provide our community with the Annual Report for 2022. Within, we highlight the many innovations, investigative successes and improvements in service delivery as we continue on our organizational transformation. 

Guided by our Strategic Plan and our aspirational vision of modernizing policing in Peel, we have launched and operationalized our Community Safety and Well-Being strategy. By building relationships with community partners and stakeholders, we have created new pathways to deliver service to calls that are non-criminal in nature. In launching several, more effective, non-traditional and non-police response for calls that require health or human services intervention, we are allowing our frontline officers to focus on responding to high-priority calls and the urgent needs of our community. 

Our members, both sworn and civilian, have accomplished so much in 2022. I am proud to highlight some of their successes in the past year:

  • Operationalized ‘Our Way Forward’, the Community Safety and Well-Being Strategy.
  • Implementation of human rights-centered initiatives across the organization such as creating a new Anti-Racism Advisory Committee and implementing mandatory training for all members.
  • Developed and expanded the Internal Support Network (ISN) Program with three new ISNs to promote inclusivity and diversity, allowing employees to feel heard and valued within a safe space throughout the organization.
  • Launched the Clinician Crisis Rapid Response Team and Embedded Clinician Crisis Rapid Response Team pilot projects. These non-police response programs address a region-wide increase in calls-for-service for non-violent calls that require a mental health, addiction-related or human services response.
  • Launched the new PremierOne (P1) Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system as part of our innovation journey to modernize and integrate technical solutions as we build for the future.

To all of our Peel Regional Police members that have committed themselves to delivering the highest level of service excellence to our community, you have my most sincere thanks. To the Police Services Board, Regional Council, our community partners, volunteers and members of the public, your ongoing support and commitment is invaluable and necessary to achieve our Vision of “A Safer Community Together”.

In September 2022, 12 search warrants were executed at various residences by 175 police officers from agencies across southern Ontario and the Canada Border Services Agency.
