Calling all YIPIs and YIPI Supporters! The Toronto Police Services Board will be conducting an online survey and several consultations (one specifically for youth) to pick the next Chief. Please see the information below and have your voice heard! As former employees of the Service, your opinion is very valuable to us. Please make every effort to participate in this process, either through the survey, the consultations, or both! For more information, please see below. Thanks! ======================== BOARD LAUNCHES PUBLIC SURVEY ON HIRING NEW CHIEF The Toronto Police Services Board (the “Board”) today posted its public survey on hiring the new Toronto Police Chief on its website (www.tpsb.ca). The survey asks the public to respond to questions in three areas: the challenges the new Chief will face; the competencies he or she needs to have to meet those challenges; and, the ways they would want to see the Chief demonstrate those competencies. “We are really looking forward to members of the public making their voices heard on such an important undertaking”, said Board Chair Alok Mukherjee. “The survey results will contribute to the development of a competency model that the Board will use in assessing candidates for the job”. The Board is also conducting a series of consultations, including four with the general public and one specifically with youth. The public sessions will be held at: North York Civic Centre 5100 Yonge Street Members Lounge Monday November 3, 2014 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM Scarborough Civic Centre 150 Borough Drive Committees Room 1 and 2 Tuesday October 28, 2014 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM Metro Hall 55 John St. Toronto Room 309 Wednesday October 29, 2014 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM Etobicoke Civic Centre 399 The West Mall Meeting Rooms 1, 2 and 3 Thursday October 30, 20147:00 PM – 9:00 PM Toronto Police Headquarters (youth consultation only) 40 College St. (Near College and Bay) 2nd.
