Event Details

Established in 2010, the Crime Prevention Conference is an annual event presented by Safe City Mississauga. The conference gathers police, government officials, educators, social workers, crime prevention practitioners, and community organizations to discuss best practices for crime prevention, and to determine how to implement these practices to make our communities safer. Crime prevention is most effective with a strong strategy driving it - and collaborating between agencies and groups is the best way to develop these strategies.
