Crime Prevention week in Grande Prairie is a busy one this year

Teens and seniors are two demographics the city’s Crime Prevention department is hoping to connect with this week. They are hosting two events, one with teens to discuss mental health, substance abuse, and technology crimes. On Wednesday RCMP members will be speaking with seniors about fraud. Assistant Crime Prevention Program Manager Angela Sutherland says they wanted to discuss issues that are relevant and distinct to each group.

“What I’m looking forward to with the teen event is hearing from them kind of, what is the situation they see out there regarding these issues, and what kind of solutions do they see in helping prevent things or provide awareness to things in their own peer groups.”

The department is also putting together a mosaic of how the community is working together to keep Grande Prairie safe. Anyone can fill out a piece of the mosaic during any of their events this week, including Thursday’s trade show at the Eastlink Centre, and the community barbecue at City on 99th on Friday.
