TPS Neighbourhood Officer Evaluation

TPS Neighbourhood Officer Evaluation

Wed, June 19, 2019

The Faculty of Social and Community Services is partnered with the Toronto Police Services to offer feedback and insights.

Focus groups were held in January 2019 to gather feedback from current Neighbourhood Officers as to what is working and what needs improvements within the Enhanced Model of the NOP (which was launched in Oct 2018). The Associate Dean, Dr. Joanna Amirault, faculty members Dr. Alyssa Ferns and Dr. Doug Thomson, and Program Coordinator – Forensic Identification, Michael Gamble, led focus groups with officers and presented their data collection plans to the divisions that are supported by the Community Partnership Engagement Unit. Currently, two Humber student Research Assistants, Trisha Harber and Dominika Kubica, are working with two Humber BSS Criminal Justice alumni, Jeremi Berg and Crystial Stone, and Research Coordinator, Tanvir Kaukab, to collect data in the enhanced model neighbourhoods – 11, 22, 41, 42. Data collection started in May 2019 and will continue into the Fall 2019 across these communities to ask questions about community knowledge of the NOP and trust in their neighbourhood officers at reducing crime, as well as the fear of crime in these micro-neighbourhoods.

Tue, June 18, 2019

FSCS Faculty for the Criminal Justice Degree Program, Dr. Alyssa Ferns, will present at the Society of Police and Criminal Psychology conference.

She will present on the Toronto Police Services Neighbourhood Officer initiatives to a multi-disciplinary group with the theme of “Working and Engaging in a Diverse World.” Building upon a program evaluation that was conducted on the Neighbourhood Officer Program by Humber ITAL from 2014 onwards, a specific exploration of the strengths and challenges within one micro-neighbourhood was explored. A total of 154 surveys were completed showing various strengths (i.e., public library access, friendly neighbours, and community centres for youth) and also some challenges (i.e., gun violence, unemployment and gang activity). The overall results showed that the community had a positive outlook on the Neighbourhood Policing Program. This will be presented to an audience of current law enforcement, applied researchers, policy makers, and academics.

Second Annual Aboriginal Moot Held at the Lakeshore Campus

Thu, May 16, 2019

On April 12, 2019, Paralegal Degree students held the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot at the Lakeshore Campus. 

The Aboriginal Moot was the capstone assignment for students in the Indigenous Legal Perspectives course. To open the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot, students toured the Indigenous Cultural Markers recently installed at the Lakeshore campus.

The Faculty of Business is meeting Humber’s aspirations pursuant to the Indigenous Education Protocol, and has responded to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, by modifying the Paralegal Degree Program curriculum. The new course compares Aboriginal Law with Indigenous Legal Traditions. Professor Shirley Wales, a lawyer and former Adjudicator for the survivors of the Indian Residential Schools, designed and taught the new course. She incorporated research from her PhD studies, including the Indigenous Legal Traditions course taught by an Elder.

The Aboriginal Moot follows the format of the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. Most Canadian Law Schools participate in the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. The Moot is also known as “The Talking Circle”. Students engage in roundtable negotiations with the aim of reaching a consensus-based settlement. They rely on Indigenous Legal Traditions, as well as provincial, federal, and international law. The students were honoured to be joined at the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot by Associate Dean James Cullin, and by Paralegal Degree faculty members Dr. Karen Schucher and Dr. John Allen.

Crime Scene Investigation Students Get Their Hands Dirty

Sat, December 01, 2018

Crime Scene Investigation students got their hands dirty with the forensic exhumation of two (imitation) human skeletons buried on Lakeshore campus.

The project replicated the process of planning, excavating and documenting the recovery of the bodies and other evidence related to a homicide investigation. The weather was quite warm leaving our students taking frequent water and rest breaks in a physically demanding and detail-oriented task that left everyone hot, sweaty, dirty, exhausted and smiling. This will be in sharp contrast to night photography in the snow and frigid temperatures they will experience later in the term.
