Strategic policing plan up for discussion

Nanaimo organizations voiced their opinions on the Ministry of Justice’s new 10-year policing strategic plan at a community roundtable discussion Friday.

Community representatives from social service agencies, victim service organizations, government and police attended an invite-only roundtable discussion intended to engage communities and determine what they want the future of policing to look like.

The roundtables are the first step in engaging communities in the development of the strategic plan. The Ministry of Justice will launch a blog and survey in the next few weeks to get feedback from the public.

The 10-year plan aims to provide goals and measures for police and focus on areas such as community safety, crime prevention and preventing gang and gun violence.

The Ministry of Justice hopes the project will inspire British Columbians to talk about how people can feel safer in communities, common policing priorities and everyone’s role in keeping communities safe.
