MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR


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.

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

Chair, 2021 ACCPA Conference

CONFERENCE TESTIMONIALS


   

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!

"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."

PRESENTATION ABSTRACT

This presentation will be an overview of two of the Urban Indigenous Restorative Justice Programs being operated by the South Region of Native Counselling Services of Alberta.. The Gladue Factored Judicial Interim Release Program and the Urban Indigenous Peacemaker Program provide services to individuals participating in the court process in Calgary. The aim of these programs is to provide culturally relevant and appropriate mechanisms for individuals in conflict with the justice system to resolve their issues. Using a restorative justice framework, the application of Gladue at Bail and of Peacemaking Circles at Sentencing provides holistic support for clients leading to positive outcomes in the community.
