In partnership with the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria, we are pleased to announce that the Saanich Police have been designated as a partner agency for the Safe Harbour Program.
The Safe Harbour Program is a nation-wide initiative designed for local businesses and organizations who wish to take a leadership role in creating an environment where all members of our community feel safe and welcomed. The program is supported through funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
Based on the popular “Block Watch” program, Safe Harbour recruits local businesses and agencies to become part of a network that commits to equitable treatment in the workplace while providing a “safe place” for victims of discrimination. While the Saanich Police has ongoing diversity training initiatives, other organizations take the two-hour training and commit to being a Safe Harbour member by displaying a Safe Harbour decal on their agency’s entrance window.
This commitment indicates to the community that our organization is a welcoming place, supportive of diversity and will assist victims of discrimination.
