The Inside Out after-school program offers youth a safe space to build resilience, foster relationships with Barrie Police, and have some fun! Through a variety of activities, youth will work to build a positive sense of self, healthy friendships as well as community responsibility and belonging.
Social media continues to be one of the most common ways that residents receive information from the Barrie Police. It serves as a platform to communicate urgent messages to the community, including investigation updates, missing person reports and traffic delays. Social media also provides information on programs and partnerships while offering community members an opportunity to aid in investigations by sharing posts for increased engagement and awareness. Residents are reminded that social media is not a reporting tool for crimes but instead offers an opportunity for shared learning and increased community engagement. The Barrie Police Service thanks everyone who has shared posts with their online community and continue to be engaged in the services that are offered.
With continued limitations from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the community events that Barrie Police Service members normally participated in were postponed or canceled. When able Barrie Police Service members took part in community initiatives virtually or found innovative ways to give back while adhering to all pandemic-related restrictions.
