15 police pilot projects to improve sexual violence response by Ontario .

Ontario is putting $1.8 million towards 15 pilot projects aimed at improving police responses to sexual violence, including two case review models that are similar to a celebrated approach pioneered in Philadelphia.

The Ontario’s initiative is a part of the province’s plan on sexual violence.

Community Safety Minister Marie-France Lalonde said,”Our ultimate goal is to end sexual violence and harassment and to create a space where survivors feel more comfortable and confident disclosing that information.”
