Barrie students in grades 9 – 12 are invited to share feedback with the Barrie Police on how the Service can demonstrate our commitment to equity and diversity to students within our local schools.
Students are asked to submit an answer to the prompt:

How can the Barrie Police Service reflect the values of diversity and inclusion when working with our youth in the community?

Responses can be submitted in any format, and creativity is encouraged! Responses can be a letter to the chief, a poster, a story, or a video – anything that helps to demonstrate the response. The Barrie Police Service wants to hear from youth by allowing them to communicate their message in a comfortable and accessible way. The submissions will be reviewed, and the top three from each grade will be selected for special recognition by the Barrie Police Service for their effort and feedback. This feedback will be used to help Barrie Police Service build upon and improve our practices.

Feedback can be submitted online at until Monday, February 22nd.

Submissions don’t require a name, but students will be asked to provide their school-issued email addresses. Students’ identities will remain anonymous unless they are chosen as a finalist. If a student is chosen as a finalist, they can choose to have the school provide their name to the Barrie Police Service Feedback Committee, or if not, they will receive a certificate that will be provided to the school.

Anyone with questions about the project can contact Special Constable Calladine at [email protected].
