he Ministry of Justice Community Safety and Crime Prevention Awards were held yesterday in Burnaby during a luncheon attended by crime prevention partners from across B.C. Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Suzanne Anton, presented the awards to 17 recipients.

The highest honour of the day, the Anthony J. Hulme Award, went to Terry Moist for his more than three decades worth of crime prevention work in North Central Vancouver Island.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Crime Prevention Week (November 1-7) in British Columbia (see the Provincial proclamation here.)

The week provides an opportunity for communities across B.C. to organize and participate in events that promote crime prevention strategies and encourage citizens to get involved in community safety efforts.

Throughout the week, the BC Crime Prevention Association will be issuing crime prevention tips sheets on a variety of topics including youth gang prevention, auto crime prevention, safety on public transit, preventing the sexual exploitation of children and youth, preventing violence against women, preventing re-victimisation, and others.

Please visit the BC Crime Prevention Association website for these daily tips sheets.
