ABOUT THE JUSTICE LUNCHEON
Safe City Mississauga will be holding the 7th annual Justice Luncheon: Policing in the Region of Peel on April 7th, 2017 at the Mississauga Grand Banquet Hall in Mississauga, ON.
The highlight of this event is a state-of-policing address from the Chief of Peel Regional Police. This speech provides a window into the successes and challenges of policing in Peel. Police play a crucial role in keeping our communities safe. However, many of us are not aware of how they do it. Justice Luncheon attendees include police, government representatives, business owners, and community organizations. The event is in keeping with Safe City Mississauga’s goal of sharing knowledge that can be put into practice by community leaders to make our city safer. It also highlights Peel Regional Police’s increasingly prominent focus on crime prevention. Together, Safe City Mississauga and the police are working to stop crime before it starts.
Chief Jennifer Evans began her career with Peel Regional Police in 1983 when she joined as a Cadet. Since that time she has progressed throughout the organization with notable assignments, which include the Uniform branch, Youth Bureau and the Criminal Investigations Bureau. In 1996 she assisted Justice Archie Campbell in the Review involving serial rapist and murderer Paul Bernardo and later accepted a two year secondment to work as a Violent Crime Analyst at the Provincial ViCLAS Centre in Orillia. Chief Evans also worked throughout the Province for the Office of the Chief Coroner as an investigator and conducted several in-custody death investigations that were subject to mandatory inquests. Upon her return to Peel she worked as a Detective in Homicide & Missing Persons Bureau, and several promotions later returned as the Inspector in Charge.
In January 2012 she testified at the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry regarding her report. Chief Evans’ knowledge and experience is recognized both provincially and nationally. For the past three years she has served as a member of the Executive of the Ontario Chiefs of Police Board of Directors. On October 12th, 2012 she was appointed as Chief of the Peel Regional Police.
