Jan 25 - Wish We'd Done That!

Bravo to the Toronto Police Board for widening the search and engaging the community. Wish we had ignored some wrong advise and done that once in a former life.

An abridged version of the Police Board letter and meeting times follow:

The Toronto Police services has commenced a process to select its next chief of police. In December 2004, the Board retained the consulting firm of Ray & Berndtson/Lovas Stanley to assist in this process.

It is not until all community input has been received that the Board will begin the next phase of its work, taking applications for the next chief.

The board will be posting a draft competency model on its website on February 1st, 2005 and will then hold community consultations on the model. At the same time, your input on the following two questions is invited:
1. From your perspective, what are the issues and challenges facing the Toronto Police Service today and for the next 2-3 years?

2. What should the priorities be for the new chief?

The meeting dates are as follows:
February 9th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
North York Civic Centre, Council Chambers

February 10th, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Scarborough Civic Centre, Committee Room 1

February 15th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Toronto City Hall, Committee Room 1

February 17th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Etobicoke Civic Centre, Council Chambers

The Toronto Police Board would very much appreciate your participation and your assistance in passing this word along to your neighbours. Call my Ward 33 office 416-392-4038. Collette and Jenny are here with any address, parking or TTC particulars.
