The ICPC organizes a focus group of local Saint-Laurent stakeholders

The ICPC met with various community and institutional key actors working in the Saint-Laurent neighbourhood as part of the process leading up to a local safety audit.

This focus group’s goal was to better contextualize local realities, to identify the more at-risk parties, and to shed light on emerging problems that might not have been brought up in literature reviews or statistics. Speaking with local actors provides us with a more accurate view of local crime issues.

The local safety audit will be finished in June 2021.
