Understanding the Increase in Mental Health Calls to Peterborough Police Since 2010
By Scottie Jean Curran, Completed for: Peterborough Police Service; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4890Y -, In 2010 there was a spike in the calls that the Peterborough Police Service (PPS) received and classified as mental health related. There has not been a significant decline in mental health calls since this rise in 2010. To understand why there was an increase in calls, this project investigated how the PPS currently classify the calls they receive and changes that may have occurred in the system for classification around 2010. Fact-finding meetings were set up by the host agency (PPS) to answer these internal questions. Online literature reviews were done and fact finding meetings with mental health service providers were requested via email. This was to determine whether mental health issues increased in 2010, whether other services knew of changes in the Peterborough community around 2010, whether similar increases in demand were experienced by the Peterborough mental health services, and whether there was a change, reduction or disappearance of services provided prior to 2010.

How do Police Services in Ontario Classify and Respond to Mental Health Crisis Calls?
By Emily Cauduro, Completed for: Peterborough Police Service; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4890Y -, The purpose of this project is to explore if there was a significant increase in the number of mental health calls received by Police Services in Ontario outside of Peterborough since 2010 and if the number of mental health calls have remained at an elevated level since 2010. A literature review was conducted to gather information on mental health calls, legislation, the political landscape from 2010 to present, police officer training, and programs targeted to minimize the amount of mental health calls received by Police Services across Ontario. Data on the number of mental health calls received by Police Services was collected from Police annual reports and compared. Fact finding meetings were also completed with members from the Peterborough Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police to gain a procedural understanding of the dispatch system.

A Community-Based Approach to Retirement Living Development Projects
By Natalie Jennings, Laurel Pirrie, Kara Rutherford, & Amy Smith, Completed for: Abbeyfield House Society of Lakefield; Supervising Professor: Elizabeth Russell; Trent Community Research Centre, In an era of population aging, many rural communities are investigating alterna- tive living accommodations for older adults. Abbeyfield housing offers a unique, non-profit, community-based, communal-living model that includes private, inde- pendent living space geared towards middle-income seniors. This model has been successful internationally and across Canada including houses in Ottawa, Toronto, Durham, and Caledon. However, before investing in developing this type of non-profit retirement living model, and the social, voluntary-based infrastruc- ture necessary to do so, it is important to thoroughly and accurately understand the local population’s needs and preferences to ensure appropriate and effective retirement housing developments. Focusing on the small rural town of Lakefield, Ontario, this community-based research project examined the needs, prefer- ences, and attitudes of older adults and other community members towards re- tirement living, to determine the feasibility and community desire for the devel- opment of an Abbeyfield house in Lakefield.
