Brandon Police Service – Special Release

The Second Year Anniversary Report – Community Mobilization Westman

The Brandon Police Service is pleased to distribute the second year anniversary report concerning, and on behalf of, Community Mobilization Westman’s ongoing efforts.

Community Mobilization Westman began its work on April 27th of 2015 when multiple human services partners came together to work collaboratively in support of people and families at acutely elevated risk.

To April 27th, 2017 the very dedicated HUB table members, dealt with 279 situations and have assisted literally hundreds of people at acutely elevated risk. People have been connected to services that they may not have known existed or may not have known how to make contact with those services. The HUB table acts as the operational arm of Community Mobilization Westman.

“This is a community effort that is having a very positive impact on people at great risk,” stated Chief Ian Grant of the Brandon Police Service, who is also the Chair of the Steering Committee of Community Mobilization Westman. Chief Grant went on to say that, “I am thankful for multiple agencies coming on board in 2015 and extremely grateful to the dedicated Steering Committee members as well as the deeply committed HUB table representatives”.

HUB Chair Mark Sefton stated, “There is no more committed group of people than the HUB table representatives, who truly want to help people out of the acutely elevated risk that they find themselves in.”

Chief Grant and Mr. Sefton can be available for further joint interviews on this media release and can be contacted as follows: Chief Grant,   204-729-2305
