PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SURVEY
Mountain View County and the Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association (ACCPA) collaborated to invite students from the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University to participate in a group project competition where they would document, analyze, recommend and present area and neighbourhood-based solutions to community safety challenges in rural areas using the County logistics as an example. The winners will be presenting to Mountain View County Council and the at the Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association Conference in May in Canmore.
A student group has developed a questionnaire, for Mountain View County residents, specifically within the Water Valley Area, their message to residents is below. We would appreciate your assistance in participating in the survey and circulating if appropriate.
Dear Resident of Mountain View County:
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We are a collaborative undergraduate research group from the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University working in coordination with the Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association. We would appreciate it if you would take 5-15 minutes from your day and answer a survey regarding your experience with, and perception of crime in your community. Results from this survey will be used in a presentation for Mountain View Council and potentially the RCMP at the 2019 ACCPA conference in Canmore.
