About us

The Department of Justice and Public Safety works to develop supports to reduce risks to the community and to strengthen the criminal and civil justice systems.

Some of the priorities in this mandate are to:

  • Designing and implementing PEI’s first Domestic Violence Court;
  • Enhancing partnerships with communities and various stakeholder groups to ensure effective and efficient emergency response as well as completing the necessary work to keep public safety best practices top of mind, including completing the After Action Review of the response to Post-Tropical Storm Fiona;
  • Further establishing a safe online environment by creating a multi-sectoral task force to develop and action plan to address cyberbullying and promote cyber-safety;
  • Conducting an operational model and governance review of PEI Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) and ensure proper staff and resources are available through EMO to provide leadership for future emergency situations.
