Crime Reduction and Community Safety Projects Receiving ICSI Funds to Be Announced At Upcoming Open House

The Integrated Community Safety Initiative (ICSI) will be presenting over 30 projects aimed at reducing crime and increasing community safety in the region with up to $10,000 next week as intake for grant applications is now complete.

“We’re pleased with the amount of engagement in the community and a number of programs that are
going to move forward,” says committee co-chair Williams Lake RCMP Inspector Jeff Pelley.

“Our applications received there was 57% of the projects to serve First Nation communities and the region at large, and 43% within the Williams Lake area.”

A total of 35 projects had applied including the City of Williams Lake that had submitted two applications on behalf of the Community Policing Committee for a security camera project and increased lighting in Boitanio Park.
