CRIM 202 + BADM 460: Community Safety

How might we foster safe communities for diverse populations?

Term: Fall 2019
Department: Criminology, Business Administration
Course: Surveillance & Social Control (CRIM 202); Business and Society (BADM 460)
Instructors: Sarah Yercich; Laurie Prange Martin
Staff contact: Sergeant Peri Mainwaring (North Vancouver RCMP)

CRIM students will select an issue relevant to the RCMP and conduct a strengths-based environmental scan on the role of different agencies in addressing that issue, with a focus on diversity, cultural and language barriers, and relationships with minorities as they relate to RCMP activity in the community.

BADM students will create stakeholder engagement plans in which they will suggest innovative ways to engage with different stakeholders implicated in the question of social chronic offenders.
