As the Toronto Police Service continues on "The Way Forward" and its implementation of a new policing model for the city of Toronto that is innovative, sustainable, and affordable, it is important to understand the public’s current perspective about the Service and the work it's doing.

To get a mid-year perspective, the public is invited to provide a quick check-in survey.

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 final report - Action Plan: The Way Forward – 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. The Toronto Police Service is now implementing this modernization plan. The new 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.
