RESET Society of Calgary has received a 2020 Alberta Community Justice Award in the Partnership and Collaboration Category.

The Alberta Community Justice Award celebrates Albertans and organizations who have found ways to prevent crime and promote restorative justice in their cities, towns and neighbourhoods.

The 29th annual Alberta Community Justice Awards were presented virtually on November 19th in four categories: leadership, innovation, community mobilization, and partnerships and collaboration. A total of four individuals and three organizations received awards this year.

“I am honoured to acknowledge the good work of these outstanding individuals who have improved the lives of others and, in turn, made our province an even better place to live and work.” said Kaycee Madu, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General.

“Each of this year’s award recipients has bettered their community in one way or another. From building lasting partnerships with local law enforcement to providing supports for victims of crime, you have demonstrated the best of what Albertans have to offer.”

“The important work you have done to keep your friends, family and neighbours safe is deserving of our utmost gratitude. Through leadership, innovation and collaboration, you empowered countless others to strive for a common goal – an Alberta where each and every person can feel safe, no matter what part of the province they are in.”

“I offer my sincere congratulations to this year’s award recipients for their remarkable leadership, collaboration and dedication to community justice.”
