The Waterloo Regional Police Service is made up of 1, 096 dedicated members who - officer or civilian - work together to keep our community safe. Waterloo Region, with a population of 565,000 people, offers diverse and unique communities throughout its three cities and four townships, of which our members are proud to serve.
Rooted in partnerships and collaboration, our community policing model supports a variety of community needs. Our members are skilled, trained, and willing to handle any situation that may arise in the interest of assisting or protecting the Waterloo Region community.
Our operational service delivery to the community is directed by the Chief of Police with the support of the Deputy Chief of Operations and a Deputy Chief of Systems and Innovation. In 2014, the Service's organizational chart was realigned to include four main areas of Command. To view the 2014 organizational chart, click here.
Every year in Waterloo Region, police members volunteer their time to charitable causes, youth programs, community groups, steering committees, and major events. Often giving back to the people we serve, police members take pride in what they do and can often be found representing the Service both on and off the job.
