This Issue Has Been With Us For Ages; a Community-based Assessment of Contact Carding in 31 Division 

In the summer of 2014, LogicalOutcomes led a community-based research project called the Community Assessment of Police Practices (CAPP) to examine community satisfaction with the Toronto Police Service in 31 Division. The study took a participatory action research approach and engaged over 400 community members. The report was released in November, and its recommendations presented to the Toronto Police Services Board.

On April 16, the Toronto police board passed a revised carding policy – missing many of the citizen protections in the earlier version​.

When examining problems facing certain communities, young people are often affected the most. Thus in conducting community-based research focused on responding to community issues and bringing about positive change, it is critical that efforts are made to mobilize youth assets and involve young people in all stages of the research process.

This toolkit and appendices provide a structured workshop/program to expose youth to the processes and practices of community research. Thank you to Youth Service Network (YSN) for supporting this opportunity to develop a toolkit for training youth in research. ​
