Smart on Crime

Together for a Safer Community


"We believe that all citizens have the capacity to create a safer community."
Christiane Sadeler, Executive Director


The Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council (WRCPC) is a community collaborative that works for social justice and positive change by addressing the root causes of crime.  It is an advisory committee to the Region of Waterloo and consists of 28 members representing the community, social services, education, health, planning, justice, police and community partners.


Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility. We all have a role to play in addressing root causes of crime to prevent it from happening in the first place. By bringing together local government, agencies and citizens we can reduce and prevent crime, victimization and fear of crime.
