Community Consultative Volunteers
A key element of community mobilization is the effective and efficient level of consultation that is undertaken between the police and all community stakeholders. Consultation is the vehicle by which the greater community and the police exchange information about issues and concerns facing them.
A true commitment to effective consultation and productive partnerships between the Toronto Police Service and the greater community lends itself to more successful outcomes in identifying, prioritizing and problem-solving of community issues and concerns and ultimately to improved community safety and quality of life.
The consultative process within the Toronto Police Service exists on three formalized levels:
- Community Police Liaison Committees
- Community Consultative Committees
- Chief’s Advisory Council and Chief’s Youth Advisory Committee
Consultative members offer their time free of charge to aid the Toronto Police Service in achieving their goal of a meaningful partnership between the community and police.
