We Call The Police Too Much
Canadian communities have failed when they allow an issue to devolve to the point of calling 911. There are already resources available to us today to develop an internal capacity within these communities.
For perspective we draw comparisons to a similar issue that was addressed in north america in the mid 1960s and outline a roadmap of the next steps.
We love working with Persons Community Solutions and have done so on many an occasion!
With their trauma informed approach to safety and harm reduction they have been a welcome and integral presence at all of the event we work on together.
The team is reliable, helpful, and incredibly intentional with how they operate in every community.
They are prompt and clear in all communications and an all around pleasure to work with.Jennie OCo-director, Fête Jockey Events | Winnipeg, MB
Fearless R2W has been working with PCS since the inception of the Community Safety Host program. Not only does Daniel and the team at PCS have exceptional knowledge of security and community safety and well-being, they keep people at the forefront of everything they do.
PCS takes the time to genuinely understand the needs of, not only our organization, but also our stakeholders and the community we work and live in.
I am very proud of the work that has been done with PCS and Fearless R2W. Fearless R2W is happy to continue working together with PCS and I would highly recommend them to any organization looking to develop a new program that prioritizes their community members.Mary BurtonExecutive Director, Fearless R2W | Winnipeg
We had a very difficult situation at our workplace. Dan and Paul provided a detailed security assessment and support in handling a potentially violent situation. They were polite, professional, and supportive. Their assistance gave everyone a sense of safety. Thank you!Alexandra BeasseExecutive Director, Oyate Tipi Cumini Yape Inc.
It is always a pleasure doing business with Daniel, as I trust that he will handle any questions, concerns, etc. with tact and courtesy. He offers a very professional and efficient service, and I never have any problems with him or his team. He has remained engaged and committed to building our capacity as it relates to security services; I feel that he has taken the time to understand our culture and our mission and this is why he is a great asset to our organization.
I originally contacted Daniel to support us in improving the quality of our security services so that they would be a more effective part of the programming that we provide to our clients and community members.
He has been able to provide us with bilingual french speaking security guards who are professional, engaged and fit well within our culture. His team offers a very professional and efficient service; I always have confidence in their work and am at ease when I know they are workingAnita Pantel-WiebeDirector of Operations, Le centre communautaire franco-manitobain, Winnipeg
I originally contacted Daniel & his colleagues to build a concept for a community patrol in our neighborhood that could address the unique needs of our community. They took things to another level on this project; they met with stakeholders and lobbied on behalf of our BIZ. When we sat down with the mayor at the end of the consultation, it was a clear demonstration of their commitment to my stakeholders.
I have confidence to give full responsibility to the team at PCS when it comes to projects involving safety, security and wellbeing in my BIZ. When I say they are “worth every penny” it really means that it is hard to put a price on the level of investment and care they put into the needs of my stakeholders.
I continue to trust the service of PCS as our needs and the climate evolves. They are a strong partner for my community, and I can easily recommend them to those organizations who can’t quite find the right fit for their stakeholders when it comes to security and wellbeing. They always take the time to listen and understand the needs; it is always clear that they are responding to my unique needs.Jennifer MathiesonEXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NORWOOD GROVE BIZ, WINNIPEG
