Diversity and Halifax Regional Police

Respecting diversity is a core value at Halifax Regional Police and an integral component of our Vision, "To build and maintain confidence, trust and safety in partnership with our communities."

Diversity training at Halifax Regional Police

The bias-free training curriculum at Halifax Regional Police was designed with Nova Scotia’s Department of Justice to provide all of our officers with training in dealing with implicit bias and how that may manifest in the policing context. Halifax Regional Police also offers specific cultural awareness training opportunities to its officers.

2003 Human Rights Decision Recommendations

As recommended in a 2003 Human Rights Decision, Halifax Regional Police hired two consulting firms - Das Management & Educational Services and Perivale + Taylor - to conduct a needs assessment of our current policies and practices on anti-racism education and diversity training.
