Thank you very much for your correspondence regarding the recruitment of a new Chief for the Toronto Police Service (TPS). As a member of the Toronto Police Service Board, I am committed to finding the most qualified individual to become our next Police Chief.
Police organizations in major urban centres around the world are having to rethink how they deliver services to best meet the needs of their communities. The TPS Board is looking for a leader who can meet the challenges of increasingly diverse populations and strained financial resources and achieve effective, equitable policing in order to make Toronto a model for the future of urban policing.
I appreciate you sharing your expectations of the next Chief. I am happy to share your insights with the rest of the TPS Board.
