Chief Kalinski to prepare business plan for OPS

January 28, 2015   ·   0 Comments

The Orangeville Police Services Board has cleared the way for Police Chief Wayne Kalinski to produce a new business plan for the town force.

The board approved the chief’s proposal at its meeting on Monday, January 19th.

Throughout the process, expected to take place over the next few months, the Orangeville Police Service (OPS) will consult with the PSB, residents of Orangeville and elected officials, as well as local businesses and the force’s sworn and civilian members to capture input from all areas for the plan.

The purpose of the consultations is to gather feedback on the delivery of services provided by the OPS, and allow them to set policing priorities over the next three years.

This announcement fulfills one of the goals Chief Kalinski outlined when interviewed at the time of his appointment about his plans as the new chief, which included a stronger focus on involving the community.

“It’s very important that I show the community that I have respect for the community and for our staff,” he said in the December interview. “We’re going to put together a three-year business plan, with community consultation. This means that we are going to speak to the community, listen to their concerns, and make sure that we address them in the business plan.”

While the plan will be for the Orangeville Police Service Board, it will be prepared by Chief Kalinski.
