Treaty Three Police Service launches new program designed to address sexual violence, human trafficking


August 18, 2020

An Indigenous police service in northwestern Ontario is hoping a new program will help address sexual violence and human trafficking in Treaty Three territory.

The Treaty Three Police Service's Spirit of Hope initiative is being funded by a provincial, three-year, $300,000 proceeds of crime grant, and should be up and running by September, said Jeff Skye, the service's deputy chief.

The program will be community-based, and work for better outcomes for Indigenous women while reducing incidents of crime against them, a description of the Spirit of Hope project posted on the province's community safety grants web page states.
