Peers Victoria Resource Society
Victoria, British Columbia

This project will document the history, objectives, best practices, benefits and challenges of a multi-year violence prevention partnership between Peers Victoria and the Victoria Police Department. While this partnership has existed in practice for years, the two principal organizations have not had the joint resources to work together to document the inter-agency model. Working together to document the working model will result in new knowledge and collaboration potential. It will enable the dissemination of guidelines, a complaints process, and training curriculum locally and to other jurisdictions seeking to implement similar models to improve accessibility of police services.
