    Description:

    As technology continues to evolve, it is more important now than ever to promote and strengthen security for individuals, governments and businesses to mitigate and prevent complex security threats. As a result of our new digital reality, the nature of crime, and the ways in which law enforcement and emergency response agencies work, are also evolving.

    While technology has the power to enable or facilitate crime, it can also be used as an effective tool to prevent, detect and respond to crime and other emergencies, and contribute to evidence-based decision-making in public safety.

    This panel discussion addresses the changing landscape of community safety, and discuss the role data continues to play in countering cybercrime in our new digital era.

Data sources examined include the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, the Homicide Survey, the Integrated Criminal Courts Survey, the Adult Corrections Survey, the Youth Custody and Community Services Survey, the Youth Alternative Measures Survey, the Transition Home Survey, the Victim Services Survey and the General Social Survey on Victimization.
