Closed-Circuit TV Surveillance Evaluation by Simona Verga( Book )

This paper reports on the statistical analysis conducted on crime data provided by the Toronto Police Services in order to assess the impact on crime after implementing the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) pilot initiative. Over the period May 2007 to October 2008, the Toronto Police Services installed CCTV cameras in a number of selected areas for periods of time between six months and one year. This report documents the results of the application of standard statistical techniques to determine the effectiveness of surveillance cameras in reducing crime, and compares them with findings from previous research studies. The analysis is based on data derived from the Toronto Police Services call-for-service ACCESS database, a comprehensive, geo-coded database that includes all records of demands for policing services involving events of a violent nature from 1995. This report addresses questions related to crime reduction in the targeted areas and diffusion of benefits beyond the targeted areas, and makes some general considerations about displacement and dispersion
A holistic, cross-government all hazards risk assessment by Simona Verga( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"This paper describes an approach to build a holistic, cross-government all-hazards risk assessment process, which aims to capture threats of all "stripes" and understand the extent to which they can become a risk to the safety and security of the Canadian population and society. The approach makes a conscious effort to consider the Canadian risk picture within the global risk environment. The federal All-Hazards Risk Assessment (AHRA) initiative aims to develop a mechanism for a comparative assessment and rating of risk events derived from all hazards (regardless of the source, whether malicious or non-malicious), in order to support emergency management planning in the federal domain. A standardized methodology is pursued in order to leverage the expertise of individual federal departments, share this expertise and knowledge across a community of practice, and generate a whole-of-government view of risks. Methods that attempt to build shared understanding of risks across organizations may be useful to multi-agency problems beyond the Canadian national context"--Abstract
