Building Safe Communities: Partners in Crime Prevention Workshops
The Federation of Calgary Communities, in partnership with the Crime Prevention Team at the Calgary Police Service, are working together to offer tips and tools on crime prevention and safety issues in Calgary! Community associations have a vital role in assisting residents to act safe and feel safe. They also strive to understand safety concerns and support crime prevention and safety improvements. These NEW workshops will assist you in doing so! The Partners in Crime Prevention Workshop series is geared towards helping community association volunteers learn valuable information about crime prevention and safety issues in their neighborhoods from our trusted partners, The Calgary Police Service. These workshops will also serve as an opportunity to network with peers. Join us all at all four Partners in Crime Prevention workshops!
