Community Safety vs. Community Anxiety: the role of the police in Toronto

A must-watch documentary highlighting the prevalence of racial profiling and police brutality in Toronto, as well promoting methods that enhance community safety versus rendering community anxiety.

This great doc was created by Toronto’s Policing Learning Initiative, a grass-roots think-tank composed of youth leaders living in the GTA who were concerned about policing issues within the city.

To Serve and Protect? In many ways, the actions of  various officers has completely delegitimized this statement

They’ve done an excellent job with this doc – it was incredibly informative, and it did a great job of obtaining a wide-array of perspectives from primary stakeholders in the community.

As someone who has a 15-year old brother, who has already been stopped randomly by the Toronto Police several times, this doc hit me hard.

We need to do something about this issue as a community, and this doc does a great job of getting that conversation started.

Watch and share!
