Dr. Chad Nilson, Global Network’s VP of Research and Evaluation, and Inaugural Research Fellow at the University of Saskatchewan, addresses delegates at the Measuring Collaborative Risk-Driven Intervention Conference held in Toronto this past January. Global Network was a proud sponsor of the event that brought together analysts, researchers and evaluators from across North America for an interactive, scientific dialogue on the Hub/Situation Table and Related Community Safety and Well-Being Models (CSWB).
The Hub model of collaborative risk-driven intervention has been widely replicated across Canada and parts of the Unites States, since it began in Saskatchewan in 2011. Research, evaluation and analysis have occurred but in segregated pockets throughout North America.
The event, hosted by The Community Safety Knowledge Alliance (CSKA), in partnership with University of Saskatchewan, University of Western Ontario and Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing, provided a rare opportunity for North American researchers, evaluators and analysts to meet in a constructive environment and strengthen their network around these models.
CSKA is a Saskatchewan based consortium of public, private and academic interests which aims to advance the knowledge, social science and evidence base, in support of multi-sector approaches to building stronger and healthier individuals, families and communities in Canada and beyond.
GN President Norm Taylor and Editor in Chief for The Journal for Community Safety (www.journalcswb.ca) gives a timely and impactful Keynote Address entitled The Role of Evidence in the Future of Collaborative CSWB. The Journal of CSWB (www.journalcswb.ca) is the first peer reviewed quarterly of its kind and the flagship publication of the CSKA.
