About the police services board

The York Regional Police Services Board is a civilian board overseeing York Regional Police. Four board members are appointed by the Regional Municipality of York Regional Council and three by the Province of Ontario.

Under Ontario's Police Services Act, the board must ensure that effective and efficient police services are provided to the nearly 1.3 million people living in our increasingly diverse and rapidly growing region.

As civilian representatives of the public's interests, the Police Services Board is committed to excellence in community-based policing and police governance. The board recognizes challenges to law enforcement created by a changing environment, demographic shifts, emerging technologies and evolving crime trends and patterns.

With the support of the citizens in York Region, the Police Services Board is confident of meeting future policing challenges in the years ahead.

Police Services Board presentations

Throughout the year, York Regional Police members present on a variety of topics to members of the York Regional Police Services Board. The public is welcome to attend these meetings, typically held at the Regional Municipality of York Administrative Centre in Newmarket.
