City seeks resident input on issue of family violence

December 6, 2016

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – In recognition of November as “Prevention of Family Violence Month” the City of Airdrie has commissioned a research study to learn about resident perspectives concerning family violence in the community.

This research project will help City Council and community agencies understand the degree to which family violence occurs in Airdrie as well as the impacts on residents and the resources that are currently available.

The City is asking residents to take five minutes out of their day to provide their thoughts in this anonymous survey. “The resulting information will help with advocacy to other levels of government, and to set direction concerning future priorities, initiatives, programs and services, as well as identify collaborative strategies that will work to address the issue of family violence in Airdrie,” says Clay Aragon, Team Leader, Community Development and Social Planning. “We encourage residents to complete the survey by January 6, 2017 and help us better understand how this issue impacts our city.”

"The Airdrie RCMP is committed to providing a police service that reflects and meets local needs. That's why citizen participation in this survey is a critical factor in our ability to respond to the issue of family violence in this community," says Cst. Jennifer Weedmark, Community Resource Officer/Media Relations Officer, Airdrie RCMP Detachment.
