The North Grenville Police Services Board (PSB) has launched the 2019 Community Survey to gather input from the public to help identify local priorities for the delivery of police services in the Municipality.
The Board is a five-member body that, in consultation with the O.P.P. Grenville Detachment Commander, establish local objectives and priorities for the provision of police service in the Municipality. The Board is responsible for monitoring the performance of the Detachment Commander, overseeing the contract for service between the Municipality and the OPP, receiving monthly performance statistics of crime and prevention initiatives. It also participates in selection process for choosing the Detachment Commander.
The 2019 Community Survey will provide data to help the PSB fulfil these responsibilities and will also be used to provide community input to aid in the development of the Grenville Detachment’s Local Action Plan. Bruce Harrison, Vice Chair of the Board, noted “This Action Plan is used to guide the delivery of police services in North Grenville, so public input from residents of all ages is extremely important to ensure that police services meet local needs”.
