Thank you for taking the time to learn about us by reviewing our 2016 Annual Report. It has been an incredible year for the Waterloo Regional Police Service as we continue to serve the Waterloo Region community with enthusiasm and respect.
Our members were outstanding this year with participation in hundreds of community events raising thousands of dollars for worthy causes. We continued our support for Special Olympics Ontario, raised almost $40,000 for the United Way, and developed campaigns in support of kindness, acceptance and good deeds.
This year was successful from an investigative standpoint as well. We made significant arrests in many high profile cases and maintained a series of complex and sophisticated investigations.
At the front line, communications and patrol have provided exceptional service, despite rising call demand from the community. We have also continued our efforts around public education and connecting with those we serve. This report is another method for providing information to the community and we hope you will join us in reflecting on 2016.
