My Record

  • I worked with the Board of Police Commissioners to create the Safe Community Action Alliance, of which the Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) is a funding partner and key member. The SCAA is a network of 35 agencies working in unprecedented coordination to better address the underlying causes of crime in the first place. We are seeing results.

  • I continue to sit on the Board of Police Commissioners and in June of this year, the SPS created the Vulnerable Persons Unit – pulling together the police and Crisis Team, the HUB table, the Strengthening Families program and Crime Free Multi-Housing to redirect people towards community supports and away from jails.
  • SPS has partnered with Okihtcitawak Patrol Group to support their very important community-led patrol work within core neighbourhoods.
  • SPS has developed an Elders Advisory Council, the Police Advisory Committee on Diversity, and a Women’s Advisory Circle to have direct input from community members
  • SPS’s newly formed Community Mobilization Unit is incorporating new models of training and community partnership to provide a deeper model of community-based policing in the Pleasant Hill/Riversdale communities.
  • Also in June this year, I put forward motions at the Board of Police Commissioners to advocate for improved police oversight and a data-driven analysis of how the police are filling the gaps in a broken system of care.
  • I initiated a collaborative working group to discuss Downtown Safety and work with the Lighthouse in developing strategies for decentralizing services in the Downtown. There are a number of plans in the works right now.
  • My office led the Smart Cities Challenge proposal for using data and technology to coordinate services for Indigenous youth and break the cycle of Indigenous Youth Incarceration. We were in the top 10 finalists of over 200 proposals across Canada.
  • The City has undertaken a comprehensive approach to implementing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action in partnership with the community.
  • I initiated the development of a City plan to implement the calls to Justice from the Report on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
