Public Safety CanadaThis project is funded through the National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS) and administered by the National Crime Prevention Centre (NCPC) via the Crime Prevention Action Fund, and covers a three-year period: April 1, 2009 – March 31, 2012. This project focuses on building and sharing practical knowledge on NCPC promising and model crime prevention programs and the implementation tools required in order to reduce crime. The term “model and promising crime prevention practices” refers to evidence-based, effective programs that address multiple risk factors in high risk populations and places. A list of NCPC “Model and Promising Crime Prevention Programs” can be found at These programs and tools are showcased annually at ACSA knowledge transfer events throughout Atlantic Canada.

This project also utilizes Community of Practice (CoP) meetings that engage a diversity of crime prevention stakeholders to assess specific knowledge transfer techniques used in the Atlantic Region. The term “Knowledge Transfer” refers to the process of actively creating and facilitating the exchange of meaningful information. These CoP sessions showcase specific techniques that members use to implement and share knowledge about community initiatives. The goal of these sessions is to focus on what works in transferring crime prevention knowledge so that best practices become common practices.

In addition, this project produces non-personal knowledge transfer techniques (i.e. newsletters, brochures, posters) to keep people connected and informed about crime prevention initiatives underway in Atlantic Canada.
