Through the Community Safety Model initiative, the Peel Regional Police is working in a collaborative manner with community partners and key stakeholders to align people strategically with agencies and resources, in order to mitigate acutely elevated risk. This is a unified multi-sectoral approach to dealing with situations more effectively and efficiently.
This initiative has two key objectives:

The structuring of this initiative began in May 2006 and it became operational in January 2014. The initiative is operational but will not achieve the desired results for at least one full year.
It was undertaken to improve the sustainability of policing.
(Estimates are based on one calendar year.)Two constables, one sergeant, one vehicle: $385,838Consultant, IT (evaluation), overtime, developing social-return-on-investment strategies, training and participation in the Ontario Working Group on Collaborative Risk-Driven Community Safety: $100,000Total cost: $485,838
This initiative became operational in January 2014 and is still ongoing at a single townhouse complex which contains 126 units.Peel Regional Police became part of the Ontario Working Group on Collaborative Risk-Driven Community Safety to learn best practices. The Peel Regional Police service met individually with our community partners, and held in-house training/information sessions to demonstrate to partners what it wants to accomplish and how it plans on doing it.
The expected outcomes are to increase community safety and wellness and to connect people with the agencies and resources they require, in the most efficient and timely manner possible, to mitigate the risk factors that may lead to anti-social and violent behaviour.This initiative is still being implemented and therefore the objectives have not yet been met.
