NORTH BATTLEFORD - The second “perceptions of community safety” survey is now open for responses and input from residents of North Battleford. 

The survey is led by researchers from Wilfrid Laurier University’s Department of Criminology, and the data will follow up from a baseline study that was conducted in 2018.

“We invite North Battleford residents to participate in this second wave of the Community Safety Survey. We hope this data will help to identify changes from the baseline survey in 2018 and identify any opportunities for community safety policy or interventions,” said Dr. Tarah Hodgkinson, Principal Investigator, in a statement. 

Hodgkinson was also involved in conducting the 2018 survey. She said that this time they will also be requesting participants' responses to health-related questions and data. 

This survey is open to individuals 18 years and older, who can participate either online or by completing a paper copy being provided at public outreach sessions. This survey is only open to North Battleford residents. 

Those participating will be provided complimentary passes to the Battlefords CO-OP Aquatic Centre or the NationsWEST Field House, courtesy the City of North Battleford.

Anyone with questions about the study are invited to contact the researcher Dr. Tarah Hodgkinson at
