Mentoring Between Somali Youth and Toronto Police

Police officers will patrol the Dixon-Islington area tonight, to make sure the peace is kept. But they'll also have the help of some local Somali youth. It's part of a larger mentorship project between police and the local community. Constable Roger Mayers is with the Divisional Policing Support Unit. And Zach Omar is a local resident who approached the police to develop the program. Laura spoke with both of them. Listen audio (runs 7:49)
