On November 9, Safe City Mississauga and University of Toronto Mississauga hosted the third annual Crime Prevention Conference. The conference gathered together people from a wide range of backgrounds to discuss best practices for crime prevention, including police, government officials, crime prevention practitioners, and students.
Evidence is at the root of effective crime prevention, and the ongoing theme of the conference is “Harnessing the Evidence – Harnessing What Works”. The sub-theme for this year’s conference is Freedoms, and how important it is that we, as Canadians, protect the freedoms we enjoy.
