ABOUT THE CRIME PREVENTION CONFERENCE
Established in 2010, the Crime Prevention Conference is an annual event presented by Safe City Mississauga. The conference gathers together police, government officials, educators, social workers, crime prevention practitioners, and community organizations to discuss best practices for crime prevention, and to determine how to implement these practices to make our communities safer.
This year’s conference will be held on November 20th, 2018 at the Corporate Event Centre at CHSI with Keynote Address by Superintendent Lise Crouch, Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, Royal Canadian Mountain Police and Morning Address by Det. Feras Ismail, Equity & Inclusion Bureau, Peel Regional Police.

The Hero Awards, sponsored by Bell, acknowledge that not all heroes wear spandex or have secret identities. Often, those who make the biggest difference in our neighbourhoods are the people we see every day. Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility.
