Vital Victoria Podcast – Episode #8 – Safety

How safe do you feel living in Greater Victoria? With relatively low crime rates and a reputation as a friendly, caring city, many residents rightfully live their daily lives with a deep sense of safety. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. From the opioid crises to mental health support to traffic and road safety, there are still problem areas for our region.

In this episode of Vital Victoria, Victoria Chief of Police Del Manak joins us to talk about safety in the region, how the police are responding to problem areas and what the future holds for the department. We also pay a visit to the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre, where our roving reporter Kyle Wells learns about the safety concerns of more marginalized groups of people and what the community can do to help.
