PEEL Regional Police (PRP) on Thursday said that they are a progressive police organization and are always looking to improve as they welcomed an equity audit.

The Regional Municipality of Peel Police Services Board on Wednesday released a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking a vendor to conduct an employment equity and diversity professional review and / or audit.

The PRP said they have met and exceeded standards set by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and Excellence Canada which are quality and excellence based programs. They welcomed the equity audit and said they were confident it will only further complement existing processes and procedures.

“One of the goals we set in our 2014-2016 Strategic Plan was to attract and retain a professional and skilled workplace that is reflective of our diverse community and addresses community growth. I am proud of the progress we have made over the past five years and welcome any recommendations that may help us further our goal,” said Chief Jennifer Evans.
