Organizational structure review also referred to as Chief’s Internal Organizational Review (CIOR).


The Organizational Structure Review was initiated to identify opportunities to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and value with respect to the utilization of the TPS resources; and to become a more streamlined and effective organization that is well positioned and structured to meet future policing challenges. The scope of the review is focused on creating conceptual organizational options and recommending an organizational model. Specifically, the scope of the Organizational Structure Review was limited to addressing the following four questions: are there opportunities for delayering TPS’ current organizational structure; are there any further opportunities for civilianization of administrative/support positions that are currently performed by uniform members; are the spans of control at all hierarchical levels effective and appropriate, considering reporting relationships, required supervision and risks, and other factors impacting span of control; is the organizational structure properly aligned to effectively enable the delivery of services both externally and internally?"--Page 5.
