TSAS RESEARCH BRIEF

Sara K. Thompson, Feras Ismail, (Detective-Sergeant, Peel Police)
with Matthew Murray, (University of Western Ontario), Lorna Ferguson, (University of Western Ontario).

Drawing on expert interviews (n=10), an environmental scan of current practices within one Canadian province (Ontario), and insights generated by a police-academic working group assembled for this project, this research documents:

1. the types of CVE activities police officers in Ontario are currently engaging in;
2. the state of police service performance assessment tools in relation to measuring officer community engagement and CVE work; and
3. whether police officers engaged in CVE work feel that existing metrics adequately capture and assess the complex nature of prevention-based CVE duties.
