Since May, we have been having working towards a new and more inclusive vision of what community safety and policing should look like in our City. In Toronto and around the world, we have seen people calling on their governments to create approaches to community safety that are fairer, systems that build communities up and more effectively help those that are in need. I have spoken to many of you through email, on the phone, or on virtual community meetings.
Recognizing the urgent need to substantially change how we deliver community safety services, the City has been taking quick action.
As we look to make these changes, it is important that we hear all voices from the community. Recently, the City launched the first phase of consultations on the creation of a community-based crisis response model. The first of the two surveys are live, and seek to understand the public's priorities when designing this program.
