Action Briefs for Community Safety 

The City of Brantford through the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Task Force wants to tackle the root causes of crime - to address crime before it happens. This strategy involves a multi-dimensional approach that has been endorsed by the Institute for the Prevention of Crime at the University of Ottawa. 

The action briefs below have been developed by 14 municipalities in a Crime Prevention Community network and published for others to learn from their experiences and knowledge.

Series 1 focuses on choosing the right investment strategy to make a city safer and series 2 focuses on specific issues common to municipalities such as street crime or violence against women.
