Volunteer with the Toronto Police Service Race-Based Data Collection Community Advisory Panel
In 2019, the Toronto Police Services Board (TPSB) approved a policy on Race-Based Data Collection (RBDC) Analysis and Public Reporting in alignment with the Anti-Racism Act, 2017, and the Data Standards for Identification and Monitoring of Systemic Racism.
The policy that aims to identify, monitor, and eliminate potential systemic racism and racial bias; identify equitable service delivery; and preserve the dignity of individuals. The policy also calls for the formation of an advisory body.
