Community collaboration encompasses all events, programs, and committees that bring the community together. It is about discussing issues, trends, gaps, and possible solutions; it means including and working with community members in City-wide efforts to address crime. It is having residents as advocates for Crime Prevention engaged in dialogue and the interchange of ideas to foster proactive initiatives.
Crime Prevention Committees were formed to meet the needs of community following a consultation with agencies, businesses and community members. These include the Outreach Worker Committee, Responsible Hospitality, Crime Prevention Committee, Building Resiliency Committee. Several other form and fold committees are formed as required to address the needs of the community.
Crime Prevention Committee
Agency partners providing information and feedback on community concerns and working with Crime Prevention to provide solutions.
Managers and owners of local bars, pubs, hotels, lounges, and casino come together to discuss issues, concerns, and trends that they are seeing, to share information in an effort to improve the safety of their patrons.
Neighbourhood Conversation Cafés are brainstorming sessions involving members of the Grande Prairie community, RCMP, Enforcement Services, and Crime Prevention, to help build a friendly and safe community. We discuss crime-related concerns in a neighbourhood and suggest neighbourhood solutions.
Each Conversation Café deals with topics that are specific to a neighbourhood with the goal of empowering neighbours to work together to reduce and prevent crime in their neighbourhood.
