The Victoria Police Department is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion and embraces these principles as crucial to healthy employees and communities. We understand that diversity and inclusion does not happen in isolation and must be systemically woven into every aspect of our operations, with a focus on measurable success and sustainable impact. As such, we have been strategic and intentional in formalizing and pursuing meaningful goals that:
Ensure employees feel involved, respected, valued, and connected;
Strengthen police legitimacy through the provision of equitable and impartial applications of policing responsibilities; and
Continue to engage diverse communities in Victoria and Esquimalt through meaningful engagement and mutual dialogue.
As our actions are formalized, we commit to being proactive and transparent in the provision of information on our progress towards achieving our goals.
