One of the CLP’s five strategic priorities is to reduce youth involvement in crime, both as victims and/or offenders.
Our current priority issues are:

  • Bullying and Cyber bullying

  • Youth Radicalization to Violence

  • Gender-based Violence,

  • Substance Misuse, and

  • Enhanced Road Safety

In order to reduce youth crime and victimization, the CLP aims to:

  • Support sustainable long-term responses;

  • Support approaches that are consistent with the Youth Criminal Justice Act;

  • Focus on risk factors, prevention and early intervention; and

  • Promote youth engagement and empowerment.

To help achieve these goals, the CLP focuses on:

  • Outreach and Engagement

  • Intervention and Diversion

Increasing youth awareness and influencing youth behavior through behavior modeling, mentoring, active learning and engaging youth to positively influence their peers, school and community.
Intervening with youth offenders and victims of crime to address underlying causes of crime and victimization through direct programming, multi-agency partnerships and referrals to community programs.

 

This includes:

  • School-based prevention initiatives;

  • Community engagement;

  • Youth consultation;

  • Youth-police partnerships;

  • On-line resources

  • Extra-judicial measures;

  • Restorative justice approaches; and

  • Multi-agency partnerships.

  • Technology-enabled engagement
