EPISODE 2: Domestic Violence: The Hidden Crime
With Guest Experts Maggie MacKillop and
Justin Dafoe of Homefront Calgary
The rates of domestic violence and severity of violence skyrocketed across the globe during the pandemic,
including in Alberta, which saw numbers jump between 30 and 50 per cent in some areas. In Calgary alone the Police Service responds to roughly 30,000 domestic conflict and domestic violence related calls a year. These stats are alarming!
In this week's brandcast, ACCPA invited Maggie MacKillup and Justin Dafoe with Homefront Calgary to speak about this important topic. HomeFront helps individuals and
families break the cycle of domestic violence through a coordinated community and justice response that works to keep victims safe and hold offenders accountable.
Once you have listened to the Live Video Brandcast you will find answers to the following questions:
👉 What is domestic violence and who is affected? Can victims in rural areas seek assistance from Home Front Calgary?
👉 Why do victims stay in an abusive relationship? What are the signs that someone might be in a situation and need assistance?
👉 How does the Homefront model help victims to access the support they need?
Tune in when we broadcast live on Facebook, Tuesday, November 30th at 7pm MST
👉 About the ACCPA Broadcast:
Every month we invite new guest experts to talk about a specific crime prevention topic. Our goal at ACCPA is to create safe and healthy communities and the broadcast is a great way to bring current information and resources to you!
