A meeting in regard to the community safety plan will happen at the OCN veteran's hall on Wednesday, March 6th.
A community meeting was held last week, and there was a request from the community to come up with a safety plan.
Diane Pelly, executive director for OCN Government Services branch, shares more:
"We know that there's a high increase in our community in terms of drugs and gang violence. And it's happening everywhere. We realize that what we're tasked to do at government services and in partnership with our leadership is to establish what that community safety plan looks like."
A group is working on that plan but is looking for community feedback, which will be addressed at this meeting.
The group will discuss preventative measures and how they would like to work directly with the schools to provide information using the GREAT model for Gang, Resistance, Education, and Training.
The meeting occurs next Wednesday from 10 am to 4 pm at the Veterans Hall.
