The Collaborative Centre for Justice and Safety
An initiative of the University of Regina Office Of The Vice-President (Research)


The Centre focuses on improving the education, training, health and productivity of first responders and public safety employees as well as assessing the economic impact of new practices through research and development initiatives. As a result, first responders services and public safety organizations obtain new technologies, receive better training and educational opportunities, obtain stronger information for evidence-based decision making, and have the ability to research other jurisdictions' best practices through an online resource known as the Information/Research Resource Centre. Through educational programs aimed at increasing the practitioner’s capability of undertaking research, they increase their ability to support evidence-based decision making. They are also able to provide input on what research initiatives are undertaken by the Centre, ensuring that the technologies and programs that are developed have the greatest impact on the industry.

Overall, the Centre’s work results in improved officer morale and productivity, and the public benefits from improved first responders and public safety methods and services.
