In 2009, the connect2ENDviolence initiative was launched as part of the Peel Police Services Board’s five-point plan to combat the growth of violence and serious crime in our community. The connect2ENDviolence website was designed to be a focal point for community discussion on violence and violence prevention. It served as a unique opportunity for Peel residents to directly express their views.
Following considerable discussion and review by the Peel Police Services Board, it was decided that the connect2ENDviolence Initiative had achieved its initial purpose and it was time to move into a new phase of community engagement. This new phase involves moving in a more strategic direction with existing community partners and stakeholders involved with community safety and the prevention of violence and crime in Peel region.
As a result of this decision, and in order to effectively reallocate limited resources, on May 5, 2011, the connect2ENDviolence (c2Ev) website was made ‘inactive’. However, one of the most popular features of the website was its “Resource Links” page. This page is kept here to allow the community continued access to useful information on violence and violence prevention.
If you can’t find the community resource, information and/or service that you are looking for, please call 211. The 211 service is a three (3) digit phone number that provides free, confidential and multilingual information that connects callers to community, social, health and government services. This service is available in Peel region.
