On November 8th, 2017, the Connaught School at 902-107th Street hosted the first of several Town Hall Community Safety Meetings. These meetings are an opportunity for residents to come out and learn about the programs the City and some of its partners are offering in North Battleford. Programs featured at this meeting included the Citizens on Patrol, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), Battlefords Victims Services and Eyes That Care.
The event was well attended as 30 residents signed up for Eyes That Care and most received their free Security Light, CPTED representatives noticed very strong interest in Formalizing Neighbourhoods proposals and Citizens on Patrol signed up new members as well as registered multiple security cameras in their Security Camera Registry.
Community Safety Coordinator Herb Sutton says, “It was encouraging to see so many people come out, learn more about some of the programs being worked on, and make a commitment to participate; this is an important part of the community safety plan.”
City Manager Jim Puffalt says “What a great opportunity to discuss the programs with our residents. Our 1st shipment of lights was picked up the afternoon of the event and we Mayor Ryan Bater with the poster and security motion sensor that come with signing up for Eyes That Care will have them delivered to all the residents that signed up previously in the next few weeks. People are genuinely excited about the chance to join the team that is working to drive preventable crimes down. We look forward to more chances to meet people in our Neighbourhoods”
