Event description

Description

MERIT is an innovative Community Safety and Well-Being Initiative supported by the Ottawa Police Service, local agencies, and service partners that aims to reduce crime, victimization and improve community resiliency and well-being. This project is expanding city-wide in 2018. This event is open to new and current MERIT partners.

This collaborative risk driven approach to community safety and well-being model provides a hub approach that brings together the most appropriate community agencies in a situation table model to provide a targeted, wraparound approach to vulnerable individuals, families and places that are experiencing elevated levels of risk.

The model works because of the commitment of the partners at the table to contribute to a collaborative risk driven approach - strong collaborations are at the foundation of a strong and responsive service system that can effectively meet the needs of the vulnerable populations in the city of Ottawa. The successful interventions crafted through MERIT are owed to the dedication of the professionals at the situation table.

This event is designed to equip new and current partners with some of the tools needed to honour privacy, confidentiality and innovation as we work together to craft effective and rapid interventions for people facing elevated risk in our communities as MERIT expands to City-wide.

This training will include:

  • Overview of MERIT mission and values
  • Overview of the Information Sharing Protocol
  • Review of the table process with group activities and videos
  • Mock situation table meetings
  • Intervention best practices
  • Handouts and tools
  • Breakouts

Lunch will be provided.
