TORONTO, Ont. – As part of the new Victim Witness Support Strategy, Toronto police are encouraging victims and witnesses of crime to take a survey to enhance response to the needs of those affected by crime.
Police also want to raise awareness of the resources available to victims and witnesses.
Sgt. Theresa Monaghan said the goal of the survey is “to connect the officers with all the services that we provide so that we can better assist victims and witnesses.”
Monaghan said there are over 30,000 agencies available.
Police also want to know whether victims and witnesses accessed any resources at all.
“What other resources and agencies were you offered if you didn’t want victim services; was there anything else that the officers could connect you with,” Monaghan said.
The survey is anonymous and can be accessed on the top left-hand corner of their website.
