The awards recognize individuals, organizations, businesses and groups who have made exceptional contributions to community safety, crime prevention and the criminal justice system.

“Preventing crime and keeping our neighbourhoods safe is a community effort. Every year, these awards recognize Albertans who have made notable contributions to safety within their communities. I encourage everyone to recognize these inspiring activities with a nomination.”

Kathleen Ganley, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General
