Everyday citizens throughout British Columbia are impacted by the effects of crime in their communities. The BC Crime Prevention Association (BCCPA), in partnership with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General and local police agencies are working collaboratively to influence change. Together a province-wide crime prevention campaign is underway. The initiative is aimed at educating British Columbians about creating safer and healthier communities.
Awareness is the best protection against crime. The goal of this campaign is to give people the information needed to help themselves and others achieve the objective of creating safer and healthier communities.”
“Crime Prevention in Changing Times” is the theme for Crime Prevention Week 2017, which runs from November 1 – 7 2017. Illustrating the safety and health of our community needs to be adaptive to the ever-changing dynamics of the communities around us. To create safe and healthy communities we need a collective effort between Police and those citizens within communities.
Crime Prevention Week 2017 Tip Sheets to support the daily topics will be released each day throughout the week.
