We would like to invite you to participate in a short survey about the policing of domestic and sexual violence, broadly referred to as gender-based violence. We would also ask you to share widely among your networks if you feel it is appropriate to do so. The survey closes on March 31, 2020.
Please note: These practices are demonstrated through a series of questions and a short video included in the survey. It is expected that survey participant knowledge about these initiatives will be minimal at this stage. An understanding of Women’s Police Stations and how they approach the policing of gender-based violence will become clear as the participant proceeds through the survey and responds to the questions.
About the Study
The survey is part of a larger international project which began by examining how Women’s Police Stations in Argentina respond to and prevent gender-based violence. Gender-based violence includes domestic or sexual violence which is mainly committed by men against women.
The results of the initial study conducted by research associates in Australia and Argentina are available at the following link: https://research.qut.edu.au/pgv/. This is not the link to the survey.
This stage of the project aims to explore whether the innovative strategies used by Women’s Police Stations in Argentina can inform approaches for the prevention of gender-based violence against women (including sexual and domestic violence) in other parts of the world, such as Canada and Australia.
This on-line survey has been designed to capture professional and community perceptions about the potential for Women’s Police Stations in Canada.
You must be 18 or over and reside in Canada.
About Your Participation
The on-line survey is entirely anonymous and will take around 10-15 minutes to complete. No details about you, your agency or organisation are being collected.
The survey asks questions about the prospect of transferring any of the elements of Women’s Police Stations to a Canadian setting.

Thank you for taking the survey. We want to remind you that you can share it with your networks if you feel it is appropriate.
