Highlights of the 2022 BPS Annual Report
A time-honoured ceremony designed to mark the occasion when the responsibility of command is passed to the incoming Chief of Police. The outgoing Chief, the Chair of the Police Services Board and the incoming Chief participate in this ceremony. This is one of the most formal ceremonies conducted by the Police Service, signifying the end of one era and the beginning of the next.
The development of an MCRT has been in development since November 2021. This MCRT pilot project continues to re-establish a collaborative partnership between the Barrie Police Service and Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre with the shared goals of minimizing police and hospital interactions through enhanced de-escalation, crisis assessment as well as intervention and triage options for follow up supports.
The Barrie Police Service is honoured to recognize the brave men and women of our service and members of the community for their outstanding work, acts of bravery, altruism and profound contribution to public safety and security.
This annual survey is an opportunity for residents to provide feedback on their perception of safety in the city. Visit the Community Safety Survey section of the Annual Report to learn about the results from 2022.
