Niagara Regional Police Service – 2023 Annual Report

The Niagara Regional Police Service is proud to present the 2023 Annual Report.

The report demonstrates the Service’s commitment to community-based crime prevention initiatives, community patrol, and criminal investigation services and the dedication of our members in ensuring that the Niagara Region is a safe place to live in, and visit.

“Community members will find details with respect to our calls for service, special victims, emergency services, special investigations, public complaints, as well as our continued efforts to support our members through our Member Support Unit and our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Unit. In our commitment to providing bias-free policing to all members of our community, we continue to collaborate with community partners to enhance and solidify relationships to ensure that all those who call Niagara home, or who visit our Region, feel safe,” said Bill Fordy, Chief of Police.

The Service also formed the Public Order Unit in Spring of 2023 to facilitate peaceful demonstrations while allowing citizens to exercise their right to come together and demonstrate in accordance with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

“This Annual Report showcases only a fraction of our work to make the Niagara Region a safe community to live, work and visit. This past year was filled with numerous opportunities and many difficult challenges as we worked diligently to provide the citizens of Niagara with continuously improving police service. Together, we implemented solutions to prevent crime and enhance the safety, security, and quality of life for all citizens in Niagara Region,” said Jen Lawson, Chair of the Niagara Regional Police Service Board.

The NRPS would like to thank you for taking the time to read this report and for playing an active role in community safety and wellbeing within the Niagara Region.
