The city of Lloydminster is working to reduce crime with an initiative known as the Hub. The Hub has been in place since 2013, but had its first information session on Friday. The program is composed of several human services in the city, and deals with people in crisis situations who are at high risk of committing crimes. The program attempts to connect those in crisis with the help they need.
Ten communities in Saskatchewan have a hub of their own. The province says it is a key component of the government’s Child and Family Agenda.
