Regardless of trends in crime statistics, many Canadians remain concerned about the level of criminal activity in many communities and believe it should be reduced.
Solutions to reduce crime, prevent victimization and enhance community safety require a comprehensive approach, including remedial measures to deal in particular with repeat and violent offenders, and additional approaches and resources to encourage prevention and deal with the root causes of crime. There are already many proven crime reduction programs across the country that could benefit all communities.
Even though comprehensive approaches to crime prevention are ultimately more effective than a narrow “tough on crime” agenda, the comprehensive approach requires a much more effective communications strategy to achieve a more positive image in the media and among many voters.
The Liberal Party of Canada, as government should commit to working with other levels of government and non-governmental organizations on a comprehensive crime prevention strategy for Canada, which include establishing targets for crime reduction, review of existing legislation, effective legislative measures to deal with repeat and violent offenders, and expansion of programs and resources that have been proven to reduce crime and make Canadian communities safer.
The Liberal Party of Canada should commit to developing a comprehensive strategy for the prevention of crime.
The Liberal Party of Canada should promote an approach to reducing crime based on prevention and rehabilitation.
