Our 2021 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 virtually May 10-13, 2021!

Warmest regards,

Mark Kay

Excellent conference. Well organized and a great diversity of speakers. Thank you.

      My first time attending. Great conference. On point with today’s rural crime. Thanks

The presenters were simply outstanding and I loved the format of the sessions (different angles) and the fact that industry partners and business were included. Crime prevention is complex and you nailed the fact that there are so many stakeholders.

Varied conference topics around a central theme. Speakers who are open to more discussions during and after the conference.

I found it all valuable, something for everybody (urban-rural)….. Great job. Thanks for all your hard work.

The presentations about technology – they fit in all areas, especially rural.

Hearing about success stories in other communities. Good ideas for people from the outside!
