MRU faculties collaborate on Public Safety and Security Research Group

March 2, 2018

The Public Safety and Security Research Group (PSSRG), a new initiative between the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Continuing Education at Mount Royal University, focuses on the “how” of prevention and response, according to its coordinators. “We are interested in how can we plan spaces, how can we have procedures for law enforcement, how can we educate members of the public who might be the first on scene or in the middle of the scene. How can we educate them in order to mitigate or prevent these kinds of actions?” says Kelly Sundberg, a co-founder of PSSRG. The group has also been in contact with postsecondary institutions in Australia and Tel Aviv to develop a course on the different forms that violence assumes. MRU
