Safe City Mississauga is hosting its 11th annual Justice Luncheon on April 26, 2022 from 11:45am-1:00pm est. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the health and safety of our attendees, we have decided to host the event online. Prior to the event, ticket buyers will be sent a unique link to access the event.
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. We’re thrilled to announce that Peel Regional Police Chief, Nishan Duraiappah, will be returning for his second Justice Luncheon this year.
Funds raised from registration will go directly to supporting our programs and services.
