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.

Our 9th annual Crime Prevention Conference will be taking place on November 26th, 2019 at the Corporate Event Centre at CHSI.

Breakfast (continental), lunch and refreshments will be included.

Attendees of the Crime Prevention Conference come from a number of different backgrounds and professions including police officers, crime prevention practitioners, academics, government officials, social workers, community organizations, students and residents.


All proceeds from the 2019 Crime Prevention Conference fund Safe City Mississauga's programs and services.

For questions, please contact Sonia, Community Affairs Coordinator, at community@safecitymississauga.on.ca or 905-615-4155 ext.4477.


SPEAKERS:


Keynote – Marcell Wilson, Founder and President, The One by One Movement

TOPIC: Gun Violence and Gangs

Marcell Wilson is the Founder & President of The One By One Movement Inc, Regional Coordinator (Toronto) for the Against Violent Extremism Network (AVE), a keynote/public speaker & consultant specializing in criminal intervention & prevention strategy.

Marcell was born in Canada to a Jamaican Canadian father & Caucasian Canadian mother (15 years old at the time of his birth) and was raised in the south-west end of Toronto in public housing, a place called Swansea Mews (Parkdale area). This is where Marcell would begin his path on a negative lifestyle trajectory to eventually becoming a gang member and one of the leaders of one of the largest black gangs in the country at the time (early 90’s), the Tiny Toons/Loony Toons Crew (Blood sect). He then went on to lead his own group called the Swansea Mews Crew based out of the neighbourhood he grew up in.

This lead to Marcell becoming deeply ingrained in Toronto’s organized criminal underworld and working with some of Canada’s most notorious organized crime outfits. He spent time in places like Lima Peru, Bogota Colombia & Panama City Panama to name a few. Representing some of the groups he was affiliated with in these countries. Though Marcell did have multiple run-ins with the law he has no criminal convictions and has spent very little time in jail therefore, Marcell’s change did not occur under the the threat of punishment. Marcell has identified and named his process of change the “Internal Realization and Transformation Process” (IRTP) brought on by several key experiences in his life. He now works rigorously to identify and combat key factors (root causes) that led him to a life of crime utilizing his insider knowledge and lived experience.
