A multi-organization partnership is now official in Regina, and the aim is simple; to keep kids as safe as possible through proactive measures while emphasizing safe, caring and restorative approaches.
The Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment & Support Protocol was signed today by members of, among other organisations, the Regina Police, Regina Public Schools and Regina Catholic Schools.
Police Chief Evan Bray says this protocol works for everyone if a threat warrants action.
“Our partners will get together instantly, make an assessment and be able to act very quickly,” said Chief Bray. “It will be in a way that not only keeps not only the students and all of the surrounding area safe, but also in a way that is going to provide that student that’s caused the risk safety for themselves and to ensure support and services to keep them healthy as well.”
Bray adds the point of the protocol is to creates and maintain safe environments for students throughout the city.
