The SPVM partnership structure is made up of seven partnership committees:
As well as a strategic committee and various formal and informal partnerships at the local and regional levels.
The committee meetings provide an important opportunity to seek solutions to practical problems, in keeping with the SPVM’s mission. To achieve this, mandates are suggested and the committees are asked to consider specific themes, such as:
The consolidated partnership structure proposes that the partnership committees meet four times a year (or more often, as required) and that the strategic committee meet four to six times a year, including two meetings with members of the various partnership committees.
Once or twice a year, two members (one SPVM member and one civilian) from each partnership committee will meet with the members of the strategic committee to discuss their respective meetings in the neighbourhood stations. This will improve the strategic committee’s understanding of the work done by the partnership committees and inform its reflections, which will in turn be used to advise the SPVM executive, as per its mandate.
One of the novel aspects of the reform of the current structure is that the partnership committees will meet in the neighbourhood stations in each region. For each meeting, invitations will be sent to various target organizations and to residents. This method will bring us closer to the realities on the ground. The meetings will also provide further opportunity for direct discussion between the SPVM and the public.
Follow-up measures are planned to ensure the effectiveness of the structure. For example, an annual report will provide an overview of the security needs of the various communities and groups and the work of all the committees will be collated.
The members of the partnership committees, the expert committee and the strategic committee all come from community or institutional organizations. They serve on a volunteer basis in a personal capacity for a pre-determined mandate:
The purpose of this measure is to foster renewal and keep the members active and motivated.
