TPS launches new Core Values and Competencies


TPS launches new Core Values and Competencies

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 1:07 PM
Strategy Management:  416-808-7018

The TPS has launched its new Core Values and Competency Framework that represent the principles and behaviours that members from the Service and the communities believe are reflective of a modern, community-centric police service. The public launch took place at the Police Services Board meeting which provided an opportunity to share the new values and the framework with the Board, the public and members. 

The Toronto Police Service’s new Core Values and Competency Framework were developed through a collaborative and inclusive process including interviews with almost 200 Service members, uniform and civilian, from all ranks, and another 100 people from community advocates to members of Community Police Liaison Committees.

There are four new Core Values: Service at our Core, Do the right thing, Connect with Compassion and Reflect & Grow.

“These are the foundational behaviours that tell us who we employ, what behaviours we need to develop, the behaviours that will be recognized and rewarded, and the behaviours necessary for promotion and greater responsibly within our ranks and leadership,” commented Chief Mark Saunders. “I would like to thank everyone – members and the community – for their help in this important process.”

The new Competency Framework was created to help guide the implementation of the People Plan – the three-year plan that provides a roadmap to improve how the Service hires, develops, promotes and preserves the wellbeing of its members. 

About the Action Plan: The Way Forward 
Mandated to look beyond the way policing is currently done in Toronto, the Transformational Task Force (TTF) proposed a modernized policing model for the city that is innovative, sustainable, and affordable. The model will place communities at its core, be intelligence-led, optimize the use of resources and technology, and embrace partnerships as a means of enhancing capacity and capability. The final report contains 32 recommendations and was accepted by the Toronto Police Services Board in February, 2017 as the Service’s Business Plan for the next three years.

Pedestrian safety campaign, "Road Safety…It Starts With You," Tuesday, January 16, 2018 through Monday, January 22, 2018


Pedestrian safety campaign, "Road Safety…It Starts With You," Tuesday, January 16, 2018 through Monday, January 22, 2018

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - 2:05 PM
Traffic Services:  416-808-1900

Since January 1, 2018, the City of Toronto has seen seven traffic fatalities. Five were pedestrian fatalities, two were driver fatalities. This represents a 250% increase over 2017 fatalities year to date. We all have a role to play in road safety. This includes prevention, education of community members, and targeted enforcement. 

Collision analysis has shown that pedestrian traffic fatalities represent approximately 60% of yearly traffic fatalities within the City of Toronto. 

In 2017, 36 pedestrians lost their lives. This represents over 59% of the total of all traffic fatalities. Mid-block crossing accounted for over 58% of the pedestrian-involved fatalities in 2017. Seniors aged 65 and older, in particular, are among the most vulnerable sector of road-users and they accounted for over 48% of all pedestrian fatalities.

In an effort to reduce fatalities and raise awareness in Toronto, a pedestrian safety campaign, "Road safety ... lt starts with you," begins on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 and will run until Monday, January 22, 2018. 

“This is a team effort to reduce death on our roads, and the team must include you, the public,” said Traffic Services Superintendent Scott Baptist. “The loss of life we have seen is intolerable. It is the simple things that we are not doing that are causing death and injury on our roads." 

Superintendent Baptist added, “By making a few changes, you will help save lives, maybe even your own. These changes include: stop crossing mid-block, stop assuming drivers can see you, stop driving a vehicle while inattentive or distracted and focus on the goal of arriving safely at your destination, regardless of the type of road-user you are.”

Pedestrians are encouraged to avoid using distracting electronic devices when interacting with vehicular traffic. Improving road safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists is our goal. 

All police officers and Parking Enforcement Officers will be focusing their attention on those motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who commit offences in the vicinity of pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections, school zones and crossing areas frequented by seniors. 

This initiative is part of the City of Toronto - Vision Zero Road Safety Plan.

Public Safety Announcements have been prepared. They are available at the following links:

Cross the Road as if Your Life Depends on it - Part 1 (0:15)
PSA1 - SENIORS.




Cross the Road as if Your Life Depends on it - Part 2 (0:15)
PSA2 - DISTRACTED.




Drive as If Someone's Life Depends On It - Part 3 (0:15)
PSA3 - DRIVERS.



Cross the Road as if Your Life Depends on it - Part 4 (0:15) 
PSA4 - MIDBLOCK.




The social media hashtag for this campaign will be #RoadSafetyStartsWithYou

The Toronto Police Service is modernizing its policing model. Part of that effort includes assessing the Service’s organizational culture – the values, beliefs and behaviours that shape how Toronto Police Service members do their work and interact with the community.

"As we modernize, we are talking to our members about what they think we, as a Service, do well and where we can improve. It’s also important for us to continue the conversation with the community that helped inform the creation of our Action Plan: The Way Forward. We are inviting the public to share their views either by attending roundtable discussions or filling out an online survey so we can get their input during this assessment process," explained Deputy Chief Barbara McLean.

The Service has hired MNP, a Canadian professional services firm, to complete the organizational culture assessment. An important part of the assessment is offering the opportunity for community members across the city to provide their input, either in person or by survey.
