MESSAGE  FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR


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

Vice President

Chair, 2020 ACCPA Conference

Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association

Join us in beautiful Canmore….

Soaring peaks, shimmering lakes and abundant wildlife! Come unwind, discover, and join the conversation at our 2019 Annual Crime Prevention Conference.


We are so excited to be hosting our upcoming conference in Canmore — a picturesque setting that we believe will set the stage for an enriching networking and learning experience.

This year’s theme “Together for a Safer Tomorrow” will bring together inspiring voices for change in community safety. Through enriching presentations, workshops, networking events and more, you will hear compelling stories and learn from those who have had a genuine impact on changing peoples’ lives.

The conference will be held from May 6 – 9, 2019 at the Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre—including optional one or two-day Pre-Conference Training Workshops taking place on May 6 & 7.

The conference aims to bring together professional experts, community members, business owners, government and law enforcement to illustrate the importance of knowledge, collaboration and partnership within our communities.

Get Inspired. Visit Canmore.

We hope to see you there! We promise, you will leave inspired, encouraged, recharged and ready.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”

– Henry Ford
