Public invited to provide input on
TPS organizational culture
Broadcast time: 16:31
Friday, January 12, 2018
The Toronto Police Service is modernizing its policing model. Part of that effort includes assessing the Service’s organizational culture – the values, beliefs and behaviours that shape how Toronto Police Service members do their work and interact with the community.
"As we modernize, we are talking to our members about what they think we, as a Service, do well and where we can improve. It’s also important for us to continue the conversation with the community that helped inform the creation of our Action Plan: The Way Forward. We are inviting the public to share their views either by attending roundtable discussions or filling out an online survey so we can get their input during this assessment process," explained Deputy Chief Barbara McLean.
The Service has hired MNP, a Canadian professional services firm, to complete the organizational culture assessment. An important part of the assessment is offering the opportunity for community members across the city to provide their input, either in person or by survey.
The public will be able to provide input via an online survey available at the following link: Organizational Culture Survey or participate in a facilitated roundtable that will be held in various locations across Toronto.

About the Action Plan: The Way Forward
Mandated to look beyond the way policing is currently done in Toronto, the Transformational Task Force (TTF) proposed a modernized policing model for the city that is innovative, sustainable, and affordable. The model will place communities at its core, be intelligence-led, optimize the use of resources and technology, and embrace partnerships as a means of enhancing capacity and capability. The final report contains 32 recommendations and was accepted by the Toronto Police Services Board in February, 2017 as the Service’s Business Plan for the next three years.
