Brantford’s Task Force on Community Safety and Crime Prevention is a volunteer coalition of community businesses and service agencies formed as a collective response to crime in Brantford.
In 2011, the Task Force undertook a strategic planning process to identify high priority objectives for increasing community safety and reducing crime rates.
During the consultation phase with the community, three local strategic objectives for delivering a safe community were identified:
- Objective 1: Resilient Youth – expand community based youth programs and increase youth participation levels;
- Objective 2: Build Healthy Families – using advocacy and community engagement support the establishment of a detox rehabilitation centre;
- Objective 3: Safe Neighbourhoods – develop tools to build neighbourhoods as safe inclusive places.
The Community Safety and Crime Prevention Task Force Strategic Plan along with its companion document the Brantford Environmental Scan establish the direction for crime prevention in this community. The plan identifies a number of initiatives that can be implemented under the above objectives.
The Task Force gratefully acknowledges the funding support given by The Trillium Foundation of the Province of Ontario.
