Crime Prevention supports existing community programs that play a role in reducing crime and educate the community on the root causes of crime and crime prevention initiatives to help create a safe community.

The four root causes of crime in Grande Prairie, and nationally, are:

  1. Substance use and abuse
  2. Breakdown of the family unit
  3. Lack of community connectedness
  4. Bullying and family violence

There are three levels of prevention:

  • Primary - there are no indicating factors present; true prevention
  • Secondary - indicating factors have been presented; the goal is to identify the problem and prevent it from continuing or worsening
  • Tertiary - problems have already happened; the focus is now on decreasing the likelihood of recurrence

Crime Prevention is proud to partner with Grande Prairie RCMP and Enforcement Services to build safe and connected communities.
