Summary

This study will seek to identify potential technology solutions that might enable the Hub model of collaborative risk-driven community safety, together with its follow-on interventions at the individual and/or family level, to be established in remote communities that might otherwise not benefit from the Hub approach.
 

Background

In many communities in Saskatchewan and elsewhere, policing and other human service agencies are collaborating in new and innovative ways to respond to the complex needs of at-risk individuals and families. The Hub model of community mobilization employs multi-agency, evidence-based approaches to identifying and responding to the needs of at-risk individuals, families. The approach offers significant opportunity to reduce demand on the community safety system, improve service delivery efficiency, and improve client access to services, thereby improving the well-being of communities. For more insight into the origins and workings of the Hub model, please see: http://www.cpc-ccp.gc.ca/sites/default/files/pdf/prince-albert-hub-eng.pdf
 
Activities will include a literature review; consultations with key stakeholders, including police and human service partners, community leaders and community-based organizations; exploration and analysis of potential solutions complete with cost implications and community impact analysis; and preparation of a proof of concept.
