Refreshing the Ottawa Gang Strategy

image021.jpg

As Chair of Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO), I would like to invite residents to fill out a short 10 minute survey on resident’s thoughts surrounding the Ottawa Gang Strategy.

The Ottawa Gang Strategy utilizes a four pillar approach to build new partnerships, improve service delivery, increase awareness of services and enhance cross agency collaboration and service coordination. Those pillars are:

–  Neighbourhood Cohesion
–  Prevention
–  Intervention
–  Enforcement and Suppression.

The year three evaluation found that CPO’s four pillar approach is the right way to address a complex social problem that touches cities across Canada but there is more work to be done.

As the strategy gets renewed, CPO wants to meet the shifting realities of our streets and communities in Ottawa. You can fill out the survey here to make your voice heard.

I would like to thank residents in advance for taking the time to complete this and as always, please do not hesitate to share your ideas with me by emailing me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.
