On Tuesday, June 28, Council was provided with an update on the City’s Community Social Safety Initiative (CSSI) from Chad Cowles, Manager of Community Safety. Mr. Cowles shared the news that the City’s CSSI Plan is fully operationalized and that the multi-faceted initiative is attracting attention from around BC as the data continues to show the effectiveness on the front lines of the community.
Community Safety is one of Council’s five Strategic Priorities and this update focused on the highlights from Mr. Cowles’ presentation and the great work that is underway in our community. Maple Ridge is a leader in applying new solutions to BC-wide challenges around homelessness, addictions and mental health.
