The provincial government is seeking nominations for Albertans who work to make communities safer.

Nominations are being accepted for the Alberta Community Justice Awards which are handed out to groups or individuals who have made outstanding contributions to community safety.

“Along with our law enforcement partners, individuals and organizations play a vital role in reducing crime throughout our communities,” stated Marlin Schmidt, acting Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, in a recent news release.

“I encourage Albertans to recognize innovative and inspiring contributions with a nomination for the Alberta Community Justice Awards.”

The Alberta Community Justice Awards are designed to recognize individuals, organizations, businesses and community groups who have taken innovative and proactive steps to address issues of crime-prevention at the local level.

Nomination categories include leadership; innovation; service enhancement; community mobilization; and partnerships and collaboration.

To nominate a community leader or group, submit a nomination form by Feb. 20.

The Alberta Community Justice Awards ceremony will take place in Edmonton in June. The event will be co-hosted by the Government of Alberta and the Calgary Police Service.
