The Barrie Police Services Board has a duty to ensure we are making the best possible use of taxpayers’ dollars every year.

The Barrie Police Service continues to focus on community safety and well-being and the role the service plays within the broader network of social services within our city.

Preparations are already underway for the 2024 budget and the service aligns its budget submissions with the guidelines from the City of Barrie council and finance department, which are provided to all service partners.

The Barrie Police Services Board is inviting the public to provide deputations on the topic of the service’s 2024 budget at the regularly scheduled board meeting on Thursday, June 15, 2023. Those wishing to give a deputation should visit and complete the budget deputation request form prior to 12 p.m. on Friday, June 9. Completed forms can be sent to [email protected].

In addition, considerations towards the 2024 Barrie Police Service budget can be emailed to [email protected], or submitted online at

The Barrie Police Services Board is committed to continuing with enhanced public engagement and public education surrounding our budget process and look forward to working with the community and the City of Barrie to ensure that the 2024 budget request is fiscally responsible and serves the community, while still ensuring the service can meet responsibilities under the Police Services Act.
