Councillor Shaun Henry introduced the Safe Places – Youth Certified initiative and requested that Council consider approving a motion to implement the program in Kindersley. Established in Swift Current, Safe Places provides training and a designation for coaches, teachers, and community volunteers who work with youth to certify that those individuals have no record of impropriety or criminal activity relating to youth. The motion was tabled until additional information can be brought to Council. For more information about the Safe Places program: http://www.swiftcurrent.ca/what-s-new/safe-places-youth-certified.
