The City of St. John’s is conducting public engagement to seek input and recommendations from residents and the community on addressing violence and crime in the municipality.

You can help.

Let us know what you think is needed to address violence and/or crime in our city. We are interested in residents’ lived experiences with violence and/or crime and perceptions of safety, as well as recommendations on best practices in the community, identification of gaps, and new initiatives that should be considered.

We also want to learn from people in our community who provide prevention and intervention services, work with children, youth, young adults, and their families and other vulnerable populations, or advocate for the prevention of violence and/or crime. Since violence and crime can impact anyone, everyone who has ideas or experiences to share is encouraged to participate.

Please note that some engagement questions may be triggering for individuals who have experienced or been affected by violence and/or crime. If you find yourself in need of support or assistance, please visit the list of Resources and Supports on this page.

City staff and the Building Safer Communities Steering Committee will carefully consider your feedback in the development of a Building Safer Communities strategy for Council approval.

The strategy will outline how the City of St. John's can work in partnership with the community and other levels of government to address the root causes of violence and crime, particularly for children, youth, young adults, and their families, and create a safer city for everyone.
