2020 ACCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Local & International Perspectives In Community Safety & well-Being
ACCPA2020-Website-1920×840

MESSAGE  FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR

Welcome to ACCPA’s  2020 conference page!

Our 2020 theme is Local and International Perspectives in Community Safety and Well-being. ACCPA membership comprises both rural and urban communities, police agencies, as well as Metis and Indigenous groups. Each year, as we plan the conference, we work hard to ensure that our sessions and topics are relevant to our target audiences.

An important component of our conference is a competition for post-secondary students with a focus on crime prevention. Students from the University of Alberta and MacEwan University will participate in the Safe Community Places Competition.

The Conference Planning Committee is committed to putting together a timely and thought-provoking agenda for you. We’ll be updating this site as our program comes together.

I hope you can join us in Edmonton May 4 - 7, 2020!

Warmest regards,

Mark Kay, Conference Chair

irvin waller

IRVIN WALLER

SESSION: LESS LAW, MORE ORDER: SMARTER CRIME CONTROL, AND THE SCIENCE AND SECRETS OF ENDING VIOLENT CRIME
Wednesday, May 6 at 10:30 AM

Irvin Waller is an author and emeritus professor, who is a prize-winning champion of victim’s rights and violence prevention.

His life work is using his knowledge across the world of different countries, the science, and logical practice to advance victims´ rights and stop street, intimate partner and sexual violence. His trail blazing work in 1985 to get the UN General Assembly to recognize rights for victims earned him multiple awards, including from the US National Organization for Victim Assistance. This led to more than 30 years working on the problems facing the world´s most crime ridden cities – particularly in advanced democracies – and so his unique ability to use science and success in one country to make advances in another.

Professor Waller has received many international awards. The US National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) and the World Federation for Mental Health both recognized his pioneering work leading to the Magna Carta for victims – when the UN adopted the Declaration on Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power, which has influenced the victim movement world-wide.

Waller has worked on national commissions in the USA, Canada and South Africa (for the Mandela government), and he has advised governments and attorneys general in more than 50 countries on how to prevent violence and respect victim rights. He developed the Safer Cities program with UN Habitat, advised on UN crime reduction guidelines and collaborates with the World Health Organization. England, Canada, Belgium, France and The Netherlands have recognized his achievements in crime prevention, particularly as the founding CEO of the International Centre for Prevention of Crime affiliated with the UN.

Professor Waller holds a Master’s degree in Economics and a Ph.D. in Law from Cambridge University. In the 1960´s, he worked as a researcher on evaluation of prisons and studies of what victims want. By the early 1970´s, he was an associate professor in the Law Faculty at the University of Toronto. In the 1970’s he was director general of research for the Canadian Solicitor General’s Department (now Public Safety Canada) and in 1982, he was appointed full professor at the University of Ottawa and became professor emeritus in 2018. He is also the immediate past President of the International Organization for Victim Assistance which is based in Portland, Oregon in the United States.

Julia Mulligan2

JULIA MULLIGAN

SESSION: SECURING EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT POLICING AND RURAL CRIME REDUCTION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM: THE ROLE OF POLICING STRATEGY, AND THE NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE, FIRE & CRIME COMMISSIONER
Wednesday, May 6 at 10:30 AM

Julia was elected North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner in November 2012, and was re-elected in May 2016. On 15 November 2018 Julia became the North Yorkshire Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner, taking over the governance of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Throughout her time, her priorities have been to improve services for local people, particularly the most vulnerable, and to provide a better service to victims. She is also committed to embedding a customer service ethos, modernising the local criminal justice process, and making the best use of technology.

Having grown up on a hill farm, and being responsible for one of the largest rural police forces in the country, Julia is also very keen to ensure rural communities are served effectively. To this end, she was a founding member of the new National Rural Crime Network and was appointed as its inaugural Chairman, in the summer of 2014, and is a post she still holds.

For people in mental health crisis, Julia has driven the creation of four health-based places of safety, and of street and force control room triage services ensuring people in crisis get the best support possible. For vulnerable victims, Julia has overseen implementation of North Yorkshire’s first Sexual Assault Referral Centre, expanded local Supporting Victims services, and tripled funding for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

Julia is also a prominent champion of the needs of the public and victims at a national level. She Chaired the Police Reform and Transformation Board, helping to set the future direction of policing in the UK, and also has national responsibilities for integrity amongst police and crime commissioners, which includes transparency, ethics and police complaints. The latter role has led to Government changing the law to give Police and Crime Commissioners responsibility for police complaints instead of local police forces.

Before taking up her post, Julia ran her own successful business, which specialised in working with the public sector – including the police and their partner agencies. During that time she planned and implemented many projects that improved the lives of local people in local communities.

Julia stood as the official Conservative Party PCC candidate and previously served as a local district councillor, in Craven, where she lives. She also stood for parliament in the 2010 general election.

Some of the improvements the Commissioner has made are:
• Supporting Victims – Julia has increased the service available to victims of domestic and sexual abuse, moving from 4 Independent Sexual/Domestic Abuse Advisors, spending approximately £120k on the service, to investing £410k and funding 14 Independent Sexual/Domestic Abuse Advisors. This has seen the number of men and women being supported increase from 384 to over 800
• Better support for those with mental ill-health – Following a successful high profile campaign, Julia also helped establish four health-based places of safety in North Yorkshire, so that people detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act no longer have to be detained in police cells. Before 2013, our county was the only place in the UK without these facilities.
• Road safety – the Commissioner has invested significantly in road safety, including £1m on Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology, protecting North Yorkshire’s borders, as well as increasing the number of safety camera vehicles from 1 to 12.
• Most recently, Julia led the development of the Community Speed Watch initiative, which is now up and running across North Yorkshire

Jan Fox

JAN FOX

SESSION: BUILDING CAPACITY IN RURAL CRIME PREVENTION
Wednesday, May 6 at 11:35 AM

Jan has served as the Executive Director of REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities where she has been privileged to lead a team of professionals dedicated to making Edmonton a safer community. REACH is a coordinating council that works closely with social agencies, businesses and citizens to invest in our community to make our city an even safer place to live, work and play. Jan takes pride in being a part of this innovative initiative that works collaboratively with many partners to improve the lives of many vulnerable Edmontonians.

Immediately prior to joining the REACH team Jan worked as a senior Executive with the Correctional Service of Canada. She believes that her work in Corrections served her well when she joined REACH. Jan knows what factors cause people to come into contact with the law and she is now happy to be working towards addressing those factors from a preventative perspective. She began her 30 year career with Corrections as a parole officer in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. During her tenure she worked operationally in many different capacities in institutions of all security levels and in policy development at the headquarters level. Although there were many firsts in her three decade career, Jan had the honour of being the first Warden at the Edmonton Institution for Women. This was particularly significant as this new facility was the first of five in Canada to open and to replace the antiquated Prison for Women in Kingston, Ontario. The new facility saw a more humane approach to incarceration and better prepared women to return to the community as responsible citizens.

During her time with Corrections, Jan was fortunate to work internationally sharing expertise throughout central Europe. She is particularly proud of her work building relationships with our Aboriginal community and has received significant recognition for this by the Aboriginal community. Jan is also proud of her work to improve the lives of women working in corrections and is the founder of the organization Women in Police and Corrections.

Jan was awarded the YWCA Lois E. Hole Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013. She was the proud recipient of the first Women of Vision Award in 1999. She has also been honored to win the Association of Professional Executives Partnership Award and the Institute of Public Administrators Team work award. Jan is an active member of the Rotary Club of Edmonton and leads an exciting new initiative called the Rotary Aboriginal Partnership. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Honours) with a major in Psychology and English, from the University of Saskatchewan.
