Mayor Kerry Cook and RCMP Insp. Warren Brown will attend a crime reduction strategy meeting in Prince George on Thursday, Nov. 28.

They will join mayors and police chiefs from Prince Rupert, Terrace, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Quesnel, as well as staff from the province’s Ministry of Justice, to discuss the history of current crime statistics and share current trends and initiatives of their particular community, said a spokesperson for Prince George Mayor Shari Green’s office.

Participants will also outline some specific steps on how they might be able to collaborate on a northern strategy to combat some of the similarities they share when it comes to crime.

In a report to council Cook said the aim of a crime reduction strategy would be to increase public involvement in reducing crime, increase integration between all stakeholders involved in crime reduction and improve public awareness around the reality and perception of crime.

City council approved Cook’s travel costs and compensation to attend the meeting.
