2022 BPS Annual Report – BPS Highlights | Barrie Police

  Barrie Police Service

Evidence-Based Policing

As the Barrie Police Service continues to prioritize evidence based policing (EBP) and data-driven decision making, the role of research has become more prominent within the Service.

In 2022, six new research projects began:

  • Adult Pre-Charge Diversion
  • Evaluating the Effectiveness of Racial Trauma Training for New Recruits
  • Examining Arrestee and Officer Perceptions of Policing in Barrie
  • High-Harm Deployment
  • Public Perceptions of Police Officer Appearance
  • High Visibility Police Vehicle Pilot

PUBLIC PERCEPTIONS OF POLICE OFFICER APPEARANCE

In 2022, the Barrie Police Service explored the relationship between the visibility of its vehicles and the perception of trust, authority, legitimacy, friendliness, approachability, aggressiveness and professionalism. The distributed survey received more than 3,000 responses. This study is being completed in partnership with Dr. Rylan Simpson of Simon Fraser University.

HIGH VISIBILITY POLICE VEHICLE PILOT

In a further effort to understand the community’s perception of a new Battenburg car design, the Barrie Police Service engaged in community pop-up surveys at various locations in the city. Results showed that 76% of respondents favoured the high visibility design, while 14% favoured the existing navy and 10% were undecided. The Service continues to explore new ways to improve visibility within the Barrie Police Service.

HIGH-HARM DEPLOYMENT

The Barrie Police Service has implemented an evidence-based, harm-focused deployment model that challenges traditional zone-focused policing practices. Using the Canadian Police Reported Crime Severity Index and modifying it according to the Cambridge Crime Harm Index principles, the Barrie Police Service deployed an innovative and victim-focused way of measuring crime and harm within the city of Barrie. Inspired by research by Braga (1999; 2008; 2012), Kennedy (2015), Ratcliffe (2022), Telep (2014), Kopper (1995; 2015), and Sherman (1995), the project has seen a significant decrease in harm in the areas of focus.

Lifesaving Award

Ms. Charmaine Nolan of the Barrie Native Friendship Centre was speaking to a male over the phone when he became unresponsive. Concerned for his well-being she called emergency services and the Barrie Police and Simcoe Country Paramedics responded to the general area that Ms. Nolan believed the male to be. Unable to find the male, officers called out and Ms. Nolan in turn guided them closer by calling out over the still open connection with the male’s phone. Officers and paramedics were able to locate the unresponsive male and provide first aid, undoubtedly saving his life.

2022 Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) Excellence in Leadership Award

Chief Rich Johnston, while still serving as Deputy Chief, was awarded the 2022 Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP)
Excellence in Leadership Award for his commitment to moving the Barrie Police Service forward as a learning organization and

School Safety Patrol Program Achievement Award

The Barrie Police Service was honoured to receive the School Safety Patrol Program Achievement Award from CAA South Central Ontario. During the pandemic Special Constable Shannon Calladine and Constable Julie Reynolds were praised for their ability to adapt and improve the training program for volunteer student patrollers within the city of Barrie.

Community Safety Survey

The Community Safety Survey is an annual survey that is used to gather feedback and gain insight into the priorities of the community and the public’s perception, values, and expectations of the Barrie Police Service. In 2022, the survey was distributed from October 17 to December 2, and received a total of 929 responses. The survey was primarily accessed through www.barriepolice.ca/survey and was advertised through a media release, internal and external stakeholder emails, paid social media posts, distribution of printed kits and survey information cards at community events and placement of digital posters throughout Georgian Mall’s public screens. The Barrie Police Service thanks everyone who completed the survey and helped distribute this important data gathering tool.
