Our vision:

A safe community is one where people know their neighbours, respect themselves and each other, where everyone is valued and included in decisions and activities in the community. There is an absence of alcohol and drug abuse, violence and fear.

PEI Safer Communities:

communities and governments working together for community safety and well-being

The Idea - Taking Stock PROJECT

The idea of the project was to take stock and with the community and government partners, put in place a plan to work together for community safety and well-being by addressing the root causes of crime.   The project resulted in PEI Safer Communities Framework.  The Project took 18 months from the time of receiving funding to evaluation.
