Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee is very hard at work addressing needs within our multicultural, BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. This committee aims to support community initiatives, promote inclusivity, implement outreach programs, develop relationships by engaging community members, provide education training and mediate in times of crisis. For further information, please contact the committee co-chairs Staff Sergeant Ben Bair at bbair@guelphpolice.ca or 519-824-1212 ext. 7127 or Staff Sergeant Michael Davis at mdavis@guelphpolice.ca or ext. 7280.

Community Liaison Officers

The goal of Community Liaison Officers is to build a mutual trust, understanding and respect between the Guelph Police Service and their assigned community. They intend to educate and communicate with the citizens of their assigned community in order for them to gain an increasing confidence in the police through the provision and enforcement of unprejudiced and professional policing services. They will also assist in productive dialogue with Investigating Operation Units concerning crimes involving their assigned community. Please do not contact Community Liaison Officers to report a crime.

To report a crime, please dial 911 if the incident is:

  • an emergency
  • in progress
  • an immediate danger to yourself or someone else

Otherwise, please call 519-824-1212.

Hate Crime & Extremism Investigative Team

The Guelph Police Service is supporting the fight against hate and extremism in Ontario in order to ensure diverse and safe communities, through its participation on the Hate Crime and Extremism Investigative Team (HCEIT). The HCEIT is a network of 13 police services which co-ordinates intelligence gathering for police and provides specialized support on investigations into hate-motivated crimes. The team’s mandate is to conduct multi-jurisdictional strategic and tactical intelligence operations targeting individuals or groups involved in hate crime and criminal extremism. The HCEIT works closely with the Ontario Provincial Police, Criminal Intelligence Service Ontario, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Security Intelligence Service and Canada Border Service Agency.
