Transforming community safety facilitation guide
Before you begin
Thank you for choosing to lead a Transforming Community Safety meeting. Please use the questions in our guide to have a successful discussion with your meeting participants.
During or after your meeting, please use our Smartsheet tool to share feedback from people who attended the meeting.
Tips for hosting a successful meeting
- Limit meeting size
Keep the meeting size to fewer than 20 people. That helps ensure everyone can participate fully. If you have a larger group, consider breaking it into smaller groups.
- Take notes
Have someone other than the discussion facilitator take notes. If you have more than one group, take notes for each group.
- Submit notes
The note taker should submit notes to the City using our Smartsheet tool. If the note taker wants to take notes using a different tool, make sure they capture all the information from the tool. If the meeting splits into more than one group, you can submit a separate notes form for each group.
Access the Smartsheet
- Read through the City's Community Safety website
Before leading a meeting, read about the City’s Community Safety initiative.
- Recap meeting notes
At the end of the meeting, consider reading the notes back to the group. That will help ensure the notes summarize the group’s input accurately
- Read well-being information
The City shares information about mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing.
