REACH Edmonton opens a one-stop shop for crime prevention resources

With the launch of its new website REACH Edmonton is opening up a virtual one-stop shop for crime prevention materials. The site is the city’s largest online crime prevention resource library. The new REACH website features a resource library with links to more than 430 pamphlets, brochures and other resources with community safety and crime prevention themes. The library allows users to search by keyword, language or subject. When a resource is selected, a side bar directs visitors to additional related resources. “We’re excited about making these resources more accessible to Edmonton residents,” said Lindsay Daniller, acting Executive Director for REACH. “If someone needs information, it’s available at the push of a button. Whether you need to know how to spot a grow-op in your neighbourhood or you are seeking information about issues facing new immigrants in the community, the resources are right there at your fingertips.” The site redesign also includes an expanded events listing featuring more detail and compatibility with iCal, interactive content and links to REACH’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. The new website will continue to evolve as resources are added and more crime prevention information becomes available. The new and improved REACH Edmonton website can be viewed at www.reachedmonton.ca. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Andy Bialowas at (587) 986-4041. -30-
