The organization will co-locate a community-based victim support worker with the RCMP to lead efforts to increase the safety and cooperation of victims, particularily Indigenous victims and sex trade workers, through coordinated case management. Up to 150 police officers will also be training in trauma-informed practices and cultural awareness.
