Diversity at GSPS

The Greater Sudbury Police Service takes great pride in the diversity of its members, both sworn and civilian. Our members consist of men and women with roots in various parts of the world including Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Canada's First Nations People. As an organization, we speak over a dozen different languages.

When we say "Our Community-Our Commitment," we mean it. We are as diverse as the community we serve.

Aboriginal Relations

The Greater Sudbury Police Service is a member of the Aboriginal Community Police Advisory Committee. This group works in partnership with the police service to assist and advise on the delivery of service that is sensitive to the needs, safety, security, and rights of the Aboriginal Community.

In January 2000, the Greater Sudbury Police Service created a full-time Aboriginal Liaison unit. Sudbury is one of only three municipal police services in the Province of Ontario to have such a unit.

Multicultural Relations

In 1989, the Advisory Committee to the Sudbury Regional Police Services Board on Racial and Multicultural Relations was formed, now called the Diversity Advisory Committee (DAC). The mandate of the committee is to advise the Board on ways of enhancing relations between ethnic/racial minorities and police. The mandate includes assessing the implementation of employment equity, advising and assisting in the development and training of all Service members, liaising between police and the community on racism and discrimination, and responding to issues identified by the Advisory Committee.
