First Regional Hub program brings together Weyburn and Estevan

Comments

The South East Regional Community Mobilization Hub program was officially launched on November 22. Weyburn Police Chief Marlo Prichard explains the purpose of the hub at the Weyburn Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Members of the hub include Weyburn and Estevan Police Services, RCMP, Sun Country Health Region, the Ministries of Social Services and Corrections and Policing, South East Cornerstone School Division and the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division.

Estevan and Weyburn and the Province of Saskatchewan officially announced the South East Regional Community Mobilization Hub program that works within the Building Partnerships to Reduce Crime approach to crime reduction and community safety and wellness November 22.

"We are pleased that Estevan and Weyburn are establishing their own regional Hub program," said Corrections and Policing Minister Christine Tell. "Improved wellness for individuals, families and the community as a whole will ultimately reduce crime and victimization."

The Hub brings staff from the Estevan and Weyburn Police Services, RCMP, Sun Country Health Region, the Ministries of Social Services and Corrections and Policing, South East Cornerstone Public School Division and the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division together to help find ways to immediately assist individuals and families in at-risk situations.

The hub will meet weekly, alternating between the two cities, covering the corridor and surrounding communities, with future plans to expand into the rural communities, including First Nations communities.

"The South East Community Mobilization Hub has proven successful in other locations, specifically Prince Albert, and I am confident it will positively affect change in our communities as well," said Weyburn Chief of Police and South East Regional Community Mobilization Steering Committee Co-Chair Marlo Pritchard. "I am optimistic we will, in the near future be expanding outward of the Weyburn/Estevan area to serve all of south east Saskatchewan."

Similar programs are established in Yorkton, La Ronge, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Nipawin and Prince Albert. In the months ahead, several other Saskatchewan communities will be looking at their own Hub programs. The expansion of the Hubs across Saskatchewan is a key component of the Government's Child and Family Agenda.
