Thank you everyone for attending the ACCPA 2014 Workshop on ‘Bringing Alberta Together…Building Resilient Communities’. It was a great success and we hope you enjoyed the presentations from the various provincial municipalities showcasing their collaborative efforts in working with other agencies/services to help reduce crime.
The ACCPA Team would like to especially thank Sheldon Kennedy as our keynote speaker addressing “how government, corporate and community can work together to build more resilient communities”. His heartfelt speech about his personal experiences as well as his efforts in building the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre was truly inspiring for all of us!
In addition, the ACCPA team would like to thank the presenters from Grande Prairie Crime Prevention and Grande Prairie RCMP; Crime Prevention Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and Wood Buffalo RCMP; REACH Edmonton and John Howard Society, Edmonton, and from Brooks: Centra Safe House, Healthy Families Outreach, and Brooks RCMP. All the presentations were very informative in terms of identifying the benefits and challenges on crime prevention collaborations. These tips will definitely help new, as well as existing collaboration efforts in the Alberta communities!
Thanks again to those of you that attended the workshop and the ACCPA Team hope to see you again for next year’s workshop!
