On behalf of all members of the Waterloo Regional Police Services Board, thank you for taking the time to review the Waterloo Regional Police Service's 2015 Annual Report and for demonstrating an interest in community safety.
As the civilian oversight and governance body, this report is an important resource for residents as it provides access to information and statistics on crime, road safety, use of force, and the demand on service in our Region. For us, it represents transparency and accountability and is also a way to highlight the many successes of years past.
It is our pleasure to provide a review of 2015 and a recap of the services provided to the residents of Waterloo Region and all of our distinct and diverse neighbourhoods. We hope you find this report informative and engaging as it supports our mandate of providing effective police services to the Waterloo Region community.
