About CPFP Central Park Foot Patrol Inc.
The Central Park community has been experiencing higher levels of violence that are linked to the meth crisis and other causes rooted in poverty and marginalization. A group of concerned neighbourhood residents started organizing in the fall of 2018, with the hope to start a community foot patrol to increase safety in Central Park.
The group was supported by several community organizations in their organizing. Together we held a Central Park Community Safety Meeting on January 28, 2019. The consultation confirmed that many of the concerns identified by the group are widely shared in the community, and participants showed great support towards the foot patrol initiative.
The group has now incorporated into the CPFP Central Park Foot Patrol Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors in the community, by providing programs, services, and opportunities for social interaction that contribute to the overall well-being and a sense of community to all.
