Our Strategic Goals
Safe City Mississauga strives to be a leader in the field of crime prevention. Through the use of promising practices and evidence-based research, Safe City Mississauga will seek to address existing and emerging issues with relevant services, events, and information to meet the community’s needs.
Collaboration is key to having the most reach and impact in our community. Safe City Mississauga will continue to build on partnerships and identify new opportunities for partnership in research, education, and programming initiatives.
Mississauga is a culturally diverse city. Through partnerships, outreach, and community efforts, Safe City Mississauga will provide information and services that resonates with the diverse communities of our city.
The organization can only continue to have impact if it is built on a foundation of sustainability. Safe City Mississauga will continue to update board governance, documents, and policies, and will pursue diverse funding sources to ensure the sustainability and relevance of the organization for the long term.
What is Crime Prevention?
“The anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the actions taken – including the integrated community leadership required – to remove or reduce it”.
As outlined in the Ontario Crime Prevention Framework, Safe City Mississauga works toward an inclusive and truly preventative approach in order to predict, identify, prevent and reduce crime by addressing the risk factors associated with crime and victimization. We focus on the factors that come before the onset of criminal and anti-social behaviour through proactive measures that target individuals, family/peers, community and society.
