In response to public concern regarding racism, white supremacy and neo-Nazism, the Peterborough Police Service offers the following statement:
Our Service works continuously with local partners striving year round to make Peterborough a safe, welcoming, accepting and inclusive community.
There are moments when we can leverage those relationships to uphold values of safety and inclusion.
We support the values reflected in the Unity Statement circulating online and as such, the Peterborough Police Service has added its name to the list of organizations and individuals that support diversity, inclusion and peace for everyone.
“We celebrate the many creative events taking place across the City this weekend that uphold the values of tolerance, acceptance and inclusion. We do not endorse or support confrontation,” says Peterborough Police Chief Murray Rodd.
“We will continue to work with our community and local partners to foster communities of safety and wellbeing.”
