Project Early Intervention
Published on 19/10/2000
Children and youth are priorities for the National Strategy on Community Safety and Crime Prevention. Particular attention is being paid to fostering community action and promoting conditions that help offset the factors which place children at risk of victimization and/or the early onset of criminal behaviour. One community effort is Project Early Intervention, launched by the Ottawa-Carleton Regional Police Service in June 2000. With support from the Crime Prevention Investment Fund, Project Early Intervention is developing and evaluating a life skills programming component for children in a neighbourhood that has a history of disturbances and very little access to programming for young children. Still in its early stages, Project Early Intervention is working to break down barriers among neighbourhood residents, social service agencies, educators and local police in order to provide seamless programming for children at risk.
