Saint John as an ‘Intelligent Community of the Year’

Thu April 19, 2012

Saint John has been selected as a 2012 ‘Top 7 Intelligent Community of the Year’ by the Intelligent Communities Forum. Saint John Police Force participation in the successful initial submission highlighted our innovative Intelligence-Led Policing business model and our innovative crime reduction strategies addressing local crime problems. More recently, Enterprise Saint John hosted sessions with Louis Zacharilla – co-founder of the Intelligent Communities Forum – to assess Saint John for recognition as the top worldwide 2012 Intelligent Community of the Year. The Saint John Police Force presentation to Mr. Zacharilla detailed our innovative Intelligence-Led Policing and crime reduction practices. Equally important, we very successfully portrayed our Intelligence-Led Policing business model as a platform for innovation …the annual theme for the award this year. The Saint John Police Force is one of a number of agencies and businesses representing Team Saint John in this competition. The manner in which the Police Force and our contribution has been embraced and acknowledged by Team Saint John has been extremely gratifying.
