MONTREAL, Oct. 27, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The ICPC, funded by Public Safety Canada and the Government of Quebec, is organizing its 12th Colloquium on Crime Prevention Strategies in the 21st Century: Evolving Practices and Policies, from November 6 to 8, 2017, in Montreal, Canada.
The proposed theme for the 12th Colloquium will focus on the evolution of the role of crime prevention actors as well as the challenges related to coordination and collaboration between governments. This theme will allow the Colloquium's participants to share their perspectives on important subjects, such as issues that affect crime prevention worldwide, financial challenges in the field, or the need for strategies that are adapted to local urban settings.
Given the significant span of existing policies and programs, as well as the variety of actors involved, ICPC's events are necessary to ensure the sharing of knowledge within the field of crime prevention.
The Colloquium offers a space for debate and dialogue between international experts, practitioners and government members, fostering innovative ideas and the formation of partnerships that will increase the effects of crime prevention as a tool for social improvement.
The Inaugural Cocktail will be held at the Pointe-à-Callière Museum on November 6, 5:30 p.m., at the Mariners' House Lobby. We are pleased to announce the presence of Mr. Martin Coiteux, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy, Public Security and responsible for the Montreal region, to mark the official opening of the Cocktail.
Date and place of the Colloquium: November 6-8, 2017, Le Nouvel Hôtel & Spa, Montreal, Canada.
