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

Partners & Members

Due to the extensive number of first responders and public safety agencies and educational institutions located within Saskatchewan, there are several organizations the Centre can pursue for partnerships during its initial and post-start-up phase. These organizations include the Saskatchewan Police College, Regina Airport Authority, Saskatchewan Police Commission, Regina Police Service, Crown corporations, the Ministry of Environment and its conservation officers, the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST), and the Highway Traffic Board in Saskatchewan.

Moving forward, the Centre attempts to collaborate and create partnerships with these and other organizations to ensure that a duplication of resources, research projects and efforts in the first responders and public safety sector are minimized.
