Waterloo Regional Police Services Board Invites Community Input into Annual Budget

Media release

The Waterloo Regional Police Services Board is encouraging members of Waterloo Region to provide their input into the Waterloo Regional Police Service’s 2024 Budget.

Developing the police budget is a critical component of the Police Board’s mandate in determining the future direction of policing in Waterloo Region. With a growing Regional population and increasing level of service demands, the Police Services Board is looking to hear thoughts from residents on law enforcement, community safety and wellbeing, and crime suppression.

The Police Services Board will host two virtual public input sessions:

  • October 26, 2023 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
  • November 6, 2023 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.

“Budget consultations provide residents in Waterloo Region with a great opportunity to convey their priorities for the Police Services Board’s forthcoming budget,” said Chair Karen Redman. “Our hope is to hear a diverse range of perspectives from our community partners with the goal of strengthening public safety and community well-being.”

The Waterloo Regional Police Services Board is committed to building a better, safer, and more equitable Waterloo Region for all our citizens. We understand that this vision can only be achieved through meaningful and respectful collaboration with our local partners.
