Partnership In Action (PIA)

The Ottawa Police framework for strategic community engagement and partnerships

Partnership in Action (PIA) is the Ottawa Police Service framework for public consultation and wider community engagement. PIA is more than a traditional consultative approach because it aims to identify and build upon community involvement and engagement within policing.

For over a decade, it has been utilized to create community-police partnerships for initiatives such as district policing, Community Equity Council, accessibility, strategic business planning for a safer Ottawa through our Let's Chat Coffee Shop series and community consultations. PIA is the cornerstone of public consultation for the Ottawa Police Service and supports the service's community-policing approach.
