The City of Kamloops recognizes the importance of a safe and secure community. Community safety requires involvement from community and government agencies, business organizations, residents, municipal staff, and City Council.
The new and more inclusive structure for the Safe and Secure Working Group—known as Safe & Secure Kamloops—provides the opportunity for broader community representation, targeted and focused discussions, and increased opportunities for partnership and collaboration.
Safe & Secure Kamloops will be supported by four engagement groups—Protective and Safety Services, Business Sector, Social Agencies, and Neighbourhood Associations—which will include City staff and representatives from community groups, government agencies, Indigenous organizations, social service providers, business organizations, and neighbourhood associations. This structure will focus beyond street-level social issues to also encompass safety and security through a broader community lens.
