This report was published by the City of Toronto and authored by Fiona Scott.

HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

The City of Toronto Youth Equity Strategy proposes recommendations to support youth most vulnerable to involvement in serious violence and crime. This report focuses on how Pre-charge diversions support Recommendation 17: that the City will develop and engage in restorative justice practices, protocols and policies and take steps to reduce the criminalization of youth.

The report argues that the City can prevent youth crime by a) investing in crime prevention overall by funding, monitoring, evaluating and coordinating youth-led, youth-driven and community based positive youth development programs and opportunities as outlined in this report, and/or b) investing in promoting and creating resources about youth-led, youth-driven and community based positive youth development programs and opportunities that police can refer youth to (informally, not through precharge diversion) and/or c) investing in a revised model of pre-charge diversion and addressing the issues and recommendations as outlined in this report.
