Ottawa Police Service Public Consultation

The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is launching a public consultation to gather feedback on changes being considered to its service delivery model. These changes are part of a strategy at the OPS, called the Service Initiative program, which is designed to improve how we serve the community given a number of pressures facing policing both in Ottawa and across North America – such as increasing costs, city growth, changing demographics, growing demands for service, and the increasing complexity of crime.

Community partners and key stakeholders are invited to a consultation to gather feedback on a new frontline deployment model.

Facilitated sessions will be held on two different days/times. As spaces are limited, OPS recommends organizations and/or groups register one participant to act as their delegate.  This will help to ensure representation from a diverse group of partners and stakeholders in the community.

Date Time Location Register
Tuesday, June 7, 2016 12:00-2:30 p.m. Fellowship Room (#112, downstairs), Woodvale Pentecostal Church,
205 Greenbank Road, K2H 8K9
Thursday, June 9, 2016 6:00-8:30 p.m. Festival Boardroom, City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, K1P 1J1

If you are unable to attend either of the sessions, you can provide your feedback through OPS’ online questionnaire or by emailing a written submission to serviceinitiative@ottawapolice.ca.

The opportunities and recommendations gathered throughout the consultation will be documented in a report and will inform the OPS’s way forward with respect to the new model.
