The Toronto Police Service's (TPS) Transformational Task Force (TTF) was formed in January 2016 and tasked with proposing future-looking recommendations of how to modernize the Toronto Police Service. The Interim Report entitled, The Way Forward: Modernizing Community Safety in Toronto outlines the key principles and goals of transformation as well as offering 24 specific recommendations.
TTF members are seeking feedback from Industry partners on the transformation strategy through the hosting of a one day consultation in Toronto on October 5.
Offering private meetings between individual vendors and task force members, these consultations are intended to enable Canada's leading innovators an opportunity to provide feedback, guidance, and their own recommendations for TPS in its pursuit of modernization. The information collected through these sessions hold the potential to shape the final report due in January 2017.
Watch as CATAAlliance Chief Business Officer Kevin Wennekes interviews Cheryl McNeil, Public Safety Operations Planner, Toronto Police Service and member of the TTF, as she provides an overview of the report's key themes, speaks to the current recommendations where technology will play a key role, and explains the intentions and format for the commercial sector consultation.
