Albertans can nominate a group or individual who has made an outstanding contribution to community safety.
The Alberta Community Justice Awards recognize those who are dedicated to their work in community safety, crime prevention and the criminal justice system.
These individuals and groups support community justice and improve quality of life by helping to address problems in their communities.
“All around us there are outstanding individuals and organizations who go above and beyond to keep Albertans safe. I encourage everyone to recognize them with a nomination.”
~ Jonathan Denis, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General
The awards acknowledge the people behind the innovative projects in the areas of victims’ services, youth justice committees, restorative justice programs and other crime prevention efforts.

- Partnerships and Collaboration
To nominate a community leader, submit a completed nomination form by February 13, 2015.
The Alberta Community Justice Awards ceremony will be in Edmonton in May. The event will be co-hosted by the Government of Alberta and the Edmonton Police Service.
