Crime Reduction Roundtable Kicks off at NIC


The North Island College Department of Humanities and Social Sciences is pleased to host B.C.’s first regional roundtable for the Premier’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Crime Reduction on Thursday, January 9, from 7 – 9 pm in the Stan Hagen Theatre on the Comox Valley campus.

The Premier’s Panel on Crime Reduction, comprised of criminologists, former RCMP leaders and a former federal deputy solicitor general, will recommend ways to drive down B.C.’s record-low crime rate.

Panel members, including NIC’s own Geri Bemister, began meeting in October, examining crime-reduction initiatives and research from other Canadian provinces and other countries. The Panel will also hold regional roundtable consultation sessions throughout B.C.

The public is invited to observe the Panel’s work and provide feedback and suggestions to further reduce crime in British Columbia.
