Event description

Description

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.

Refreshments and Lunch will be included.

MORNING ADDRESS: DR. IRVIN WALLER AND FELIX MUNGER, CANADIAN MUNICIPAL NETWORK ON CRIME PREVENTION

Municipalities across Canada are faced with the harm caused by crime and rising costs of enforcement. Despite the praiseworthy efforts of enforcement, investing in social development (i.e., families and young people) through evidence-based programs is the most effective and cost-effective way to prevent crime. Many examples illustrate that municipalities are best positioned to work with local agencies and neighbourhoods to identify service needs and thus tackle the multiple causes of crime.

This presentation will focus on the evidence of crime prevention programs, the key role municipalities play in developing and sustaining comprehensive community safety strategies, and some of the initiatives municipalities have implemented, as well as steps that municipalities can take to prevent crime by investing in people.


KEYNOTE ADDRESS: NANCY WORSFOLD, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, CRIME PREVENTION OTTAWA

Starting with a consultation in 2012, Crime Prevention Ottawa, the Ottawa Police Service and community partners have built a multi-stakeholder approach to the issue of street violence through a coordinated, strategic approach. The strategy has included 12 projects addressing 4 pillars: Healthy Neighbourhood Cohesion; Early Prevention; Intervention; and Enforcement and Suppression. The strategy was evaluated in 2016 and is being refreshed in 2017. Nancy Worsfold, Executive Director of Crime Prevention Ottawa, will describe the work done, results to date and the path forward for the future in Ottawa.
