How we work

We prefer working closely with the client community, keeping communication channels open to allow dynamic change and allowing the client community to be an essential part of the process. We first commit to entering your community and taking the necessary steps to develop our cultural competency; then we consult with community members and try to identify the roots of the challenge.

From there, we carefully combine evidence based practices in a way that best fits the particular community.

Our team

We are a team of experts who have been working together since 2014 and have found a common vision :

Daniel Waycik

Co-Founder/Director of Operations

Over 10 years experience as a community safety specialist with a focus on human rights implementation, one brings a diverse background in safety, investigations, traffic management, change management, training development and public engagement.

Daniel applies these principles in all projects.

Often referring to ones self in reflections, one is the egghead of PCS; who cherishes those creative moments, barricades in the office for hours at a time to tackle a unique challenge; who is happiest being in the field and implementing a complex project.

Daniel is an enthusiast of public and active transportation.

Daniel rides a bicycle year-round (and whenever possible) and considers comparing different transportation infrastructure in exotic locations the best way to take a vacation.

In ones spare time, loves tinkering with mechanics or small electronics and listening to science, politics, history and philosophy in podcast form.
