S4 Background

Start Smart Stay Safe (S4) began in 2010 as a collaborative three-year pilot project between the Calgary Police Service (CPS), Calgary Board of Education (CBE), Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD), and Mount Royal University’s Centre for Child Well-Being (MRU). It was funded through Alberta Justice Safe Communities Innovation Funding. In September 2013, S4 will start the city-wide rollout in all Calgary elementary schools and will be the universal strengths-based model for the Calgary Police Service in schools.
