On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at 6 p.m., at 201 Chester Le Boulevard, Deputy Chief of Police Peter Yuen will host a community conversation on the Neighbourhood Officer Program. Called Build The Block T.O., the Toronto Police Service is asking the public to share its thoughts on neighbourhood policing.

After a presentation by Deputy Yuen, members of the community will know why their neighbourhood was chosen for this program and what they can expect in the coming months.

Attendees will then be asked key questions that will help inform how the officers are selected, what training they should have and how best they can serve the public going forward as Toronto Service looks to create an enhanced Neighbourhood Officer program.

The conversation will also be available on social media. You can watch live, by clicking here or follow #BuildTheBlockTO on Twitter.

This is the last of six community conversations.
