A core value of the Waterloo Regional Police Service relates to community diversity. Diversity relates to those characteristics that make us unique as individuals. These characteristics include race, ethnicity, gender, colour, age, education, and disability. It also extends to other characteristics such as sexual orientation, language, religion, marital status, and physical appearances.
We respect and benefit from the diversity within our Service and our community. We have dedicated this section of our website to a celebration of the diversity found within Waterloo Region, a vibrant, prosperous community with a quality of life that is among the highest in the world.
Key Events attended by the Diversity-Community Connections committee, along with WRPS uniform and civilian members include the following:
- Chinese New Year Festival
- Romanian Celebration
- Multi-cultural festival
- Focus on Friends event
- Ertugrul Education Society Event
For enquires about these events or to request our attendance at an event in our community that highlights diversity, please contact: Staff Sergeant Alison Bevington, Community Connections Chairperson
