Citizens and members of the media are invited to attend Monday’s Board of Police
Commissioners’ meeting, where Chief Jean-Michel Blais will present the 10-Year Strategic Plan for Halifax Regional Police (HRP).
HRP began the strategic planning process in May 2013 with the creation of a Strategic Planning Group comprised of a cross-section of our employees. A comprehensive consultative process then followed, which included conducting extensive research into who we are and where we want and need to go over the next 10 years. We knew the only way to create a successful plan was to reach out to members of our community and various stakeholders, as well as HRP employees, to discover the vision they had for their police agency.
The final Strategic Plan is the result of extensive community and employee input, as well as asking ourselves some very tough questions. Through online surveys and engagement sessions, we learned our strengths, weaknesses and opportunities.
“Many people generously provided input, so it’s only right that HRP now reports back to citizens through the Board of Police Commissioners to show the result of their invaluable contribution,” says Councillor Linda Mosher, Chair of the Halifax Board or Police Commissioners. “I hope we’ll have a packed house at the meeting so as many citizens as possible can see this important presentation.”
There will be further presentations given to the community going forward, and the Strategic Plan document will be posted on the HRP website on Monday, June 8.
