Funding for Police Services Boards announced by Solicitor General Sylvia Jones

For Dryden, Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls and Kenora

KENORA, ONTARIO ~~~~~~  April 13, 2022  (LSNews)   The Ontario government is investing over $1.3 million over three years to provide Dryden, Sioux Narrows Nestor Falls and Kenora with significant new resources to safeguard these communities.This funding is part of Ontario’s $267 million investment in the Community Safety and Policing (CSP) Grant Program for initiatives that help combat crime locally.

Dryden, Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls and Kenora Police Services Board are three of 90 police service boards receiving funding through the CSP Grant Program for 147 public safety initiatives focusing on local and provincial priorities such as gun and gang violence, sexual violence and harassment, human trafficking, mental health and addictions and hate-motivated crime. Many projects will be undertaken in collaboration with community partners.

“Our government recognizes the critical need to ensure that our local police services boards are funded to manage the unique challenges that they face in ensuring public safety in our communities,” said Greg Rickford, Member of Provincial Parliament for Kenora – Rainy River. “This funding will help our local police services boards meet these needs.”

Dryden Police Services Board

After the amalgamation of Dryden Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) the OPP plans to continue to work collaboratively with community partners and stakeholders to enhance social outcomes and make positive choices easier for all residents of the Dryden area. This initiative will focus on utilising school programming and the community services officer to support and educate students on different topics such as phone, internet and bike safety.

Kenora Police Services Board

Funding will support the health, justice, mental health and addiction sectors of Kenora District that have joined together to develop a model for a mobile crisis response to better meet the needs of persons experiencing mental health and/or addictions-related crises. The goal is to build on the existing services and strengths in the district and work collaboratively to improve access to timely crisis assessment and intervention in the community. In partnership with the Kenora Chiefs Advisory Council, Kenora Police Service’s Mobile Crisis Response Team will continue to provide crisis response to services for youth ages 12 to 24 in Kenora. Funding will support the team’s work to respond to crisis calls from youth, as well as meet with youth placed into care who are acutely at risk.

Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls Police Services Board

Funding provided will cover the expense of a Sioux Narrows Nestor Falls community services officer that will help enhance community safety. The community services officer is a patrol member dedicated to the Township of Sioux Narrows – Nestor Falls whose time is spent exclusively in Sioux Narrows and Nestor Falls and the Lake of the Woods area that surrounds the community.

Community safety is a top priority, and our government has been strengthening our justice system to protect communities and hold offenders accountable,” said Solicitor General Sylvia Jones. “This investment is another way we are helping police services address local challenges and improve the well-being of the people they serve. Whether to combat the opioid crisis, share intelligence, or prevent violent crime, this funding will make a difference in all corners of Ontario.”

The CSP Grant Program helps police services address priority issues identified in their communities such as expanding mental health supports, preventing crime in schools and combatting cyber-crime. It also addresses provincewide priorities such as: 

  • Gun and gang violence
  • Sexual violence and harassment
  • Human trafficking
  • Mental health and addictions
  • Hate-motivated crime.
