"VTRA is the recognized 'Gold Standard' for violence prevention and intervention! Alongside the Toronto Police Service, we are in the midst of providing VTRA Training to over 1000 front line/multi-disciplinary staff from nearly 100 Community Agency Partners that are involved with our F.O.C.U.S Situation Tables. Further, we have found that above the recognized benefits of VTRA, this FOCUS Toronto capacity building has immediately enhanced our operational responses to preventing/countering violent extremism in Toronto."
