The purpose of the Community Programs Officer (CPO) is to provide coordinated, community-based crime prevention initiatives to the Kingston Community with a focus on neighbourhoods, business, aging sector and risked based crime prevention.
The goal of the CPO Program is to circumvent a crime before it occurs. The definition guiding crime prevention in Ontario reads as follows:
"The anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the actions taken – including the integratedcommunity leadership required – to remove or reduce it”.
