Released on May 6, 2019The Status of Women Office and the Ministry of Corrections and Policing are partnering with Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan and the Regina Police Service to support a pilot project of the Philadelphia Model at the Regina Police Service.
The implementation of the Philadelphia Model in other Canadian cities has prompted police to reopen sexual assault files that were previously classified as unfounded.
“Saskatchewan stands with survivors of sexual violence in its commitment to ensure all cases are thoroughly investigated,” Corrections and Policing Minister Christine Tell said. “The Philadelphia Model has shown great promise in other jurisdictions, and we are eager to see how it can be implemented and adapted in our province.”
“This pilot project is part of an overall commitment to being better, specifically: to enhance the service we provide to survivors of sexual assault and violence in our community,” Regina Police Service Chief Evan Bray said. “A trauma-informed approach, in concert with this advocacy review process, will improve accountability, transparency and overall service to our community.”
The Ministry of Corrections and Policing and the Status of Women Office together are providing $122,000 in funding to cover the cost of the pilot project. Along with training, the funding also creates a co-ordinator position, for the duration of the pilot project, within Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan.
“Our organization is thrilled to receive the financial support from the provincial government,” Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan Executive Director Kerrie Isaac said. “Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan, in collaboration with community, identified barriers that many individuals who experience sexual violence encounter when reporting.”
The pilot project begins in the summer of 2019.
