Board Meeting Highlights - November 24, 2021
2023-2025 Business Plan Development Strategy
The development of the 2023-2025 York Regional Police Business Plan will build on current policing priorities and reflect anticipated changes in the future operating environment. The Plan relies heavily on consultation with internal and external stakeholders including members of the public.
A survey will be distributed to policing and community based partners, including mayors, economic development leaders, social service providers, paramedic services, fire services, and hospitals. Additional consultation will be conducted in partnership with Community Services, including the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Bureau, using methods such as focus groups, workshops, and other activities.
York Regional Police will enhance engagement with the community using social media outreach town halls via Twitter and Instagram Live events. Invitations will be sent to key stakeholders and messaging will be posted on all York Regional Police social media and digital platforms to advertise these events. Special focus will be placed on consultations with the following groups: Youth/Young persons, seniors, Indigenous persons (First Nation, Inuit, Métis), Members of racialized groups, persons who appear to have a mental health condition and with disabilities.
Secondary data sources will be considering data from reports and recommendations from the York Regional Police Black Community Consultative Roundtable; York Regional Police 2SLGBTQ+ Community Consultative Roundtable; Region of York Community Safety and Well-being Plan; The Black Experience Project report; The Social Capital report; and York Regional Police Customer Satisfaction Surveys. 2023-2025 Business Plan Development Strategy

Crime Statistics Rankings and Crime Severity Index Overview
York Regional Police conducts a review and analysis of police reported crime statistics released by the Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statics, a division of Statistics Canada, and compiles national and provincial statistics rankings and crime severity index overview reports. The review is completed annually and York Regional Police is ranked amongst nine comparable national and provincial police jurisdictions. The 2020 crime data rates from Statistics Canada can be found in the 2020 National and Provincial Crime Statistics Rankings and Crime Severity Index Overview board report. Improvements were seen in the rankings of property crime clearance rates and non-violent weighted clearance rates, but the rankings decreased for violent crime clearances.
