In 2006, after the notorious Summer of the Gun and the Boxing Day shooting of Jane Creba, the Toronto Police started the Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS) with the goal of addressing crime in high-violence communities and improving community-police relations. Instead, TAVIS became a paramilitary arm of the police that continues to terrorize predominantly Black communities. Recently, four teenaged boys were stopped and harassed by TAVIS in Lawrence Heights. The incident ended with one boy getting a gun pulled on him and the all four boys being arrested.
