On behalf of the members of the North Bay Police Service, Board Chair O'Connor and Chief Cook are pleased to share our 2014-2016 Business Plan. This past year we conducted the most extensive internal and external consultations in our history to assist us in setting our policing priorities for the next three years; ensuring the highest quality of policing to the citizens we serve. Feedback from our community was received during public consultations in the form of a series of "Town Hall" meetings; through a sophisticated Poll conducted by an independent third party professional polling company; and through a number of focused surveys.
The development of our Business Plan is in accordance with the guidelines of the Provincial Adequacy Standards, which mandates that the following five core functions are addressed by all police services in Ontario; Crime Prevention; Law Enforcement; Assistance to Victims of Crime; Public Order Maintenance; and Emergency Response.
This Plan builds on the successes we have achieved during previous Business and Strategic Plans and will ensure we remain committed to our Vision, Mission and Values. We have incorporated realistic goals and objectives along with clear performance measures to ensure we continue to provide professional and accountable policing in a fiscally responsible manner.
We believe our members are our most valued resource and we continue to challenge them to make a difference in the communities we serve each day. We recognize them for their ongoing professionalism, integrity, compassion and dedication to duty. This Plan reflects our commitment to our employees by ensuring they are provided with the necessary, equipment, technology and training to carry out their day-to-day duties in a very complex and ever-changing world.
This Plan provides our Police Services Board and our Police Service with clear direction for the future and we are committed to working with our many community partners to maintain public safety and enhance the quality of life of the citizens we have sworn to serve.
