The Barrie Police Service is proud to present the Service’s 2023 – 2025 Strategic Plan.

The development of a Strategic Plan is a requirement for all police services and is a welcomed opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the Service and review the progress that has been made towards achieving policing excellence.

The plan was created through consultation with our Barrie Police Services Board, our Barrie Police Service membership, our community partners, and the residents of the city of Barrie. We thank everyone for their involvement in the surveys, focus groups, town halls, pop-up consultations and one-on-one interviews that helped inform our priorities and provide insight into how we must all work collectively to achieve a vision of a “Safer tomorrow, today.”

“The three priorities within our Strategic Plan reflect the changing nature of policing and the importance of community working together,” said Barrie Police Chief Rich Johnston. “We continue to focus on data-driven decision-making and ensuring that our organization has the resilience to respond to the needs and requirements of our community.”
