As Chair of Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) I am pleased to share with you that CPO has just released two important evaluation reports. The reports; Ottawa Gang Strategy—Seeking Solutions to Street-Level Violence: Our First Three Years and The Evaluation of Crime Prevention Ottawa’s 2014 Community Investments were presented to the Community and Protective Services Committee on Thursday October 20th .
The first report demonstrates that the strategy’s 12 initiatives have contributed to tangible progress on neighbourhood cohesion, prevention, intervention, and suppression and enforcement.
The second report found that CPO-funded projects created greater awareness and education, enhanced strategic partnerships, and provided opportunities for skills development for community groups and stakeholders in Ottawa.
The reports will be presented at the Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) Community Forum taking place Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 from 5:30-7:30 PM at Ottawa City Hall in the Honeywell Room on the 2nd floor.
I would like to invite all residents wishing to remain informed on current and ongoing CPO initiatives to stop by.
