Halifax District RCMP set operational priorities for 2015/2016 following extensive consultations with communities.
Following recent community consultation sessions hosted with representatives from the Halifax Board of Police Commissioners, as well as feedback received via social media, Halifax District RCMP has set its operational priorities for 2015/2016.
‘After conducting presentations and engaging in open dialogue with our citizens, reoccurring themes were evident’ said C/Supt. Roland Wells, Officer in Charge of Halifax District RCMP. ‘The focus this year remains unchanged from the previous year, as there are no short-term fixes to the issues that our communities constantly face.’
Halifax District RCMP’s operational priorities for this fiscal year continue to be:
-Road Safety, with a focus on:
· strategic enforcement (based on the analysis of crime trends)
· awareness, with the goal of reducing serious/fatal collisions and distracted drivers
-Cyber Crime, with a focus on:
· improving public awareness on emerging trends
· prevention through partnerships with the business community
-Crime Prevention/Reduction, with a focus on:
– analyzing crime data leading to the strategic deployment of policing resources
– the Hybrid Hub model (a community-led, evidence-based, intervention model for youth)
– reducing property crimes and crimes against persons
Halifax District RCMP and Halifax Board of Police Commissioners would like to take this opportunity to thank citizens who came out to participate at the sessions throughout Halifax. This direct approach of engaging with communities is a critical component in the development of the Halifax District RCMP’s collective plan moving forward.
