Community Consultative Committees (CCC)

The Mission Statement of the Toronto Police Service Community Consultative Committees is “to create meaningful partnerships through trust, understanding, shared knowledge and effective community mobilization to maintain safety and security in our communities.”

The consultation process is not meant to provide another level of police oversight, but rather to establish a process that affords opportunities for enhanced community safety involving community based activities, leadership opportunities, mutual exchange of information and the development of joint problem solving initiatives.

The purposes of CCC’s are to set goals and objectives consistent with Service priorities at the beginning of each calendar year. An important function of Liaison officers is to organize and or assist when requested town hall meetings that are to be attended by the Chief of Police or other senior command officers. Request for assistance may originate from divisions or CCC's that have an ongoing initiative in process.

The CCC's are meant to serve and represent specific communities throughout the City. The membership is drawn from various organizations within each of these communities, and serves as a voice on wider policing issues such as training, recruiting, professional standards, and community mobilization.
 

Each CCC is co-chaired by a senior TPS member and a community member. Current Community Consultative Committees:

  1. Aboriginal - liaison Constables Monica Rutledge & Richard Warman
  2. Asia Pacific - liaison Constable Williador Isip
  3. Black - liaison Constable Alphonso Carter

Community Policing Liaison Committees (CPLC)

During the year members attended over 50 CPLC meetings when requested by divisional unit commanders, This regularly occurred after major incidents in the 17 divisions and as part of any operational plan that required a community engagement component or if a community safety initiative was being considered.

The purpose of the CPLC is to provide advice and assistance to the local Unit Commander on matters of concern to the local community including crime and quality of life issues. The CPLC is also consulted as part of the divisional crime management process established by Service Procedure 04-18 entitled “Crime and Disorder Management”, a process which includes assisting the local Unit Commander in establishing annual priorities.

CPLC participants included representation from various racial, cultural or linguistic communities, social agencies, businesses, schools, and places of worship, local youth and senior groups, marginalized or disadvantaged communities and other interested entities within the local community. Each CPLC is co-chaired by a senior officer and a community member. Community members are continually encouraged to participate in their local divisional community programs.

Chief's Community Advisory Council (CAC) & Chief’s Youth Advisory Committee (CYAC)

 The Service operates a third level of consultation at the Chief of Police level.  The Chief's Community Advisory Council (CAC) and the Chief’s Youth Advisory Committee (CYAC) exist to support and ensure community safety through proactive engagement between the Service, our diverse communities and our youth.

The CAC and CYAC shall have a liaison officer with direct access to the Chief of Police and in return, the Chief of Police has a point of reference in the community to engage in constructive dialogue with appropriate, recognized community spokespersons.
