Prince Albert Crime Reduction Initiative Celebrates Success and Looks Ahead

Released on February 3, 2015

This February marks four successful years since Community Mobilization Prince Albert (CMPA) officially launched its mission to improve community safety in the city. 

“We are a proud partner in CMPA, and I appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in making it such an ongoing success,” Minister Responsible for Corrections and Policing Christine Tell said.  “I’d also like to specifically thank former Executive Director Ken Hunter, whose guidance has turned CMPA into a national benchmark on how to foster healthy communities.”

Over the last four years, CMPA has brought the justice system, educators, health care professionals and local organizations together to address the root causes of crime and connect at-risk individuals and families with the services they need. 

According to the most recent statistics available from Statistics Canada, since CMPA began operations the overall crime rate in Prince Albert has decreased by 21 per cent, the violent crime rate has decreased by 37 per cent, and the property crime rate is down 31 per cent.

“The past four years have been incredible, working alongside so many dedicated people to build the foundation we have now,” Executive Director of CMPA Glenis Clarke said.  “I look forward to the next four years as we work with the government’s Building Partnerships to Reduce Crime initiative to enhance our ability to meet safety and wellness needs within our community and around the province.”

The Hub and Centre of Responsibility (COR) models pioneered by CMPA have expanded across Saskatchewan and Canada.  Hubs are networks of community and government agencies that share information to ensure at-risk families and individuals have immediate access to services they need.  The CORs use the information gathered through the Hubs to evaluate long-term trends in crime and victimization. 

There are currently 12 Hubs and two CORs operating in the province.  The expansion of Hubs and CORs is part of the Building Partnerships to Reduce Crime initiative, a key component of the Government of Saskatchewan’s Child and Family Agenda.
