CPO Public consultations on street violence in Ottawa


Street violence affects us all. On June 28 at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre, Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) will take the next steps in refreshing the Ottawa Gang Strategy by holding a public consultation forum.


From 2013–16, the Gang Strategy Steering Committee, together with community partners, developed and implemented 12 initiatives to address the problem of street violence. Their four-pillar approach contributed to tangible progress.


As the Strategy is renewed, CPO wants to meet the shifting realities of our streets and communities in Ottawa. To do so, your input is requested. This public consultation will allow CPO to hear from a variety of people across Ottawa to find solutions to street violence.


I would like to invite all resident to join for facilitated discussions that will help CPO to collectively address the problem.


The event will be held from 6:00-8:00 PM on June 28th at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre (1265 Walkley Rd). Registration is required by emailing cpo@ottawa.ca or by calling 613-580-2424 ex: 25393.
