Mayor Simon Yu sets up standing committee on public safety

Mayor Simon Yu

At Mayor Simon Yu’s urging, the city is establishing a standing committee on public safety.

The purpose of the committee is to “undertake observation and collection on crime statistics and to explore solutions through tested best practices learned from local and other jurisdictions in order to address public safety issues facing downtown Prince George including the area east of Queensway,” said Yu. “The goal of the committee is to make every citizen to feel safe.”

The committee will be made up of seven members, which includes the mayor, councillors Brian Skakun, Trudy Klassen, and Ron Polillo and three members from the community as appointed by the mayor. The meetings will also have non-voting representation from city administration, Downtown Prince George, and RCMP.
