Summary: This project aims to identify the qualities that make Night Patrols unique, including the role of Indigenous women patrollers. It will create a greater awareness of the role gender plays in reforming policing and community safety programs and generate best-practice models of Night Patrols. The findings of this research will inform and improve the capacities of agencies and regulatory authorities and indigenous communities to work together, leading to greater security, peace and safety.
