Community safety and well-being planning
We work with police and community partners to develop community safety initiatives and resources to help communities address local crime and complex social issues, such as mental health and addictions, gun and gang violence, human trafficking and hate-motivated crimes.
As part of this work, municipalities must develop a community safety and well-being plan in consultation with service providers and community partners.
