  #SpeakUpDurham Diversity Open House

Sep 20, 2016 08:45 ET

The Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) is inviting the public to participate in a panel discussion on diversity and inclusion as part of our ongoing outreach activities.

On October 4, 2016, the DRPS Chief's Community Diversity Advisory Committee is hosting the Speak Up Durham Diversity Open House. The purpose of this panel discussion is to talk openly with residents that represent all the dimensions of our diverse Region with a focus on police-community relations.

The panel will consist of Chief Martin, Deputy Chief Fernandes, Deputy Chief Jaswal, CAO Stan MacLellan and leaders from each policing division, as well as local community leaders who sit on the advisory committee. Chief Martin and Regional Chair and Police Services Board Chair Roger Anderson will provide opening remarks and then they will open up the floor for members of the audience to ask the panel questions.

Residents are able to send in questions ahead of the event if they prefer the moderator to ask the panel their questions. If you're using social media, use the hashtag: #SpeakUpDurham or email at speakupdurham@drps.ca.

DRPS is encouraging residents to Speak Up Durham and let us know your thoughts on diversity and policing.

When: Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Where: Region of Durham Headquarters, Council Chambers
605 Rossland Road East, Whitby, Ontario
