Together for Safety

Together for Safety
Following the signing of the Together for Justice Protocol on March 8th, 2013 between Liard Aboriginal Women’s Society and Watson Lake RCMP, Whitehorse women’s groups began working with the Whitehorse RCMP to create a Whitehorse RCMP Division safety Protocol titled Together for Safety.

Together for Safety outlines how Whitehorse RCMP and the signatories will work together to foster a community that is safe for all women. The signatories include Les Essentielles, Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Whitehorse Aboriginal Women’s Circle, Yukon Status of Women Council, Public Service Alliance of Canada Regional Women’s Committee and Aboriginal People’s Committee, and Yukon Women’s Transition Home Society.

The signatory members and the Whitehorse RCMP share a common goal: to improve response services to women in Whitehorse. By strengthening relationships between the Whitehorse RCMP and women’s advocacy groups they will build mutual understanding and trust. Whitehorse RCMP and Whitehorse Women’s groups signed Together for Safety May 29th, 2015.

Over the past three years, the relationship between the women’s community and the RCMP has improved greatly, as we have strengthened our relationships and understanding of each other. This, in turn, has improved our respective services and ability to collaborate. One objective of Together for Safety is to ensure that the collaborative relationship that was built between Whitehorse women’s groups and Whitehorse RCMP during the creation of the Together for Justice Protocol continues.
