Public Safety Strategy
With four priority areas, 16 objectives and 76 actions, the Public Safety Strategy pushes the municipality and its partners to think and act upstream, or systemically and holistically about the complex, multiple, and interconnected roots of crime, victimization, safety and wellbeing. The Public Safety Advisor oversees the implementation of the actions in the strategy through collaboration and partnerships with internal and external stakeholders and provides advice on locally informed, evidence-based approaches to community safety and wellbeing to further advance the strategy’s goals.
