Speaking at Board Meetings

The Police Services Board cannot do its job without knowing the needs, concerns and priorities of the community. It gathers that kind of input through several mechanisms, one of which is through hearing delegations at Board meetings. We want to continually improve police services in our City and to do that, we need you to share your concerns or innovative ideas. Even better, get involved in crime prevention programs in your own neighbourhood; information on how to get involved is available on their website.

The Police Services Board entertains public delegations at its regular monthly meetings. As these are business meetings, each delegation is restricted to five minutes, not including any questions the Board members may wish to ask you following the presentation.

Please note, effective February 27, 2023, the Board enacted changes to its Procedure Bylaw. including procedures around the hearing of delegations. Delegations wishing to address the Board during the delegation portion of the regular meetings may be heard with the approval of the Board. Requests must be made to the Executive Director and must include a written copy of the comments that will be presented. Such requests must be received in full no later than noon on the last full business day prior to the date of the proposed delegation. The Board requires that you submit your comments in advance in writing so they can be distributed to the Board members prior to the meeting, allowing Board members to come to the meeting better prepared to discuss them with you.  All requests to speak must be approved by the Board Chair and the subject matter must be within the jurisdiction of the Board.

To ensure receipt of your request, please ensure it is sent to the Executive Director Krista Ferraro krista.ferraro@ottawa.ca and the Board Assistant Randa Ben Guedria randa.benguedria@ottawa.ca.  You are invited to provide your preferred pronouns and the phonetic pronunciation of your name. If you would rather not appear before the Board, you can also submit your comments in writing. For more information around the procedures for delegations, please consult Section 31 of the Board’s Procedure Bylaw.

Please note that individual complaints are not considered at Board meetings as there is a legislated public complaints process to deal with such matters that must be followed and the Board must not interfere in that process - see the section on this website or at the Ottawa Police website.
