About the Envisaging the Future Project

The 12-month Envisaging the Future (EtF) project responds to the current attention and reflection on the role of policing in addressing complex issues with health, criminal justice and social justice impacts and implications. The aims of the project are to identify, document, showcase and increase accessibility of practical, alternative initiatives aimed at achieving community safety and well-being across a wide range of settings globally.
