Islanders’ opinions wanted on policing services

Islanders will have the opportunity to share their experiences and provide feedback on provincial police services.

As part of government’s continuous improvement efforts, ADGA was selected through a competitive process to conduct a mid-point evaluation of the 2017 police review. The evaluation will assess the progress achieved to date and identify opportunities to further enhance provincial public safety initiatives.

“I’m proud of the work that’s been accomplished since the review came out, but it’s been some years since the original review was done. Government has a responsibility to respond to the needs of Islanders. We can only do that if we take the time to hear from people to make sure that our priorities match up."

- Justice and Public Safety Minister Bloyce Thompson

As experts in defense and security, ADGA will engage with Islanders across the province including municipalities, law enforcement and community partners to review current public safety activities and produce a well-researched, qualitative report to support the Department of Justice and Public Safety’s mandate to fight crime in the province. 

“The events over the last year were eye opening for us all, ranging from having to follow strong measures to keep us healthy and safe from COVID-19, to the hard realities we have to face about systemic racism in our society. One thing is clear, when it comes to public safety, there are always things we can do better to make sure all Islanders feel safe in their communities,” Thompson added. 

Islanders can complete the survey in English or French from March 22 - April 9, 2021.
