Groups Form Safety Strategy
To carry out this vision, Building Bridges created The Community Safety Strategy. The CSS will identify, embrace and promote awareness and understanding of current and emerging community safety issues and align with the Cityâ€™s Community Sustainability Plan.
â€śWe felt it was best to get the key players around the table, pool resources and have representation from a cross section of residents that make up this communityâ€ť Sgt. Dwayne Rawson said. â€śWe are very excited to spread the word about the CSS and get more people involved,â€ť he continued.
The CSS has eight initiatives; Civic Pride, Child and Youth Safety, Domestic Abuse and Violence, Effective Policing, Respect and Support for Seniors, Dignity and Support for Persons with Disabilities, Embracing Diversity and Cultural Inclusion and Addictions.
Collaborating on the project are the City of Fort Saskatchewan, RCMP, Municipal Enforcement, Boys and Girls Club, Families First, Careers Under Construction, Pioneer House, Special Transportation Services Society, Restorative Justice, Elk Island Public Schools, Fort Saskatchewan Multicultural Association, Fort Saskatchewan Mental Health, Probation Office/Solicitor General, Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network (PCN) and Community Adult Learning and Literacy Society.
