CSKA was pleased to participate in an interview on our Collaborative Risk Driven Intervention:  Technology-Enabled Opportunities in Rural and Remote Communities project with CATAAlliance Chief Business Officer, Kevin Wennekes.  Kevin interviewed Dr. Chad Nilson, Inaugural Research Fellow, Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science and Justice Studies, University of Saskatchewan, and Cal Corley, Chief Executive Officer, Community Safety Knowledge Alliance on the recently released study of the pilot project utilizing information and communication technology (ICT) as a means of risk detection, information sharing, intervention planning, and ongoing service provision.

As described in the interview, the purpose of this project was to conduct research on ICT options in Saskatchewan, explore adaptations of the Hub Model to fit the needs of remote communities, consult with key ICT and collaborative risk-driven intervention professionals, and lay out a detailed plan for community safety and well being stakeholders in Saskatchewan to move forward with technology- enabled Hubs in rural and remote communities.

The CBC Radio One program IDEAS in partnership with the Munk School of Global Affairs is airing a two-part series which considers what it means to police and be policed in these complex and anxious times.  

The first show, “To Serve or Protect”, focused on policing the community in an age of mistrust.   Use this link to access the file:  


The second show, "Old Cops, New Expectations”, will focus on the changing nature of policing – and of crime - in an age of terrorism, highly diverse societies, new technologies, cyber-crime and innovation.  CSKA's own Cal Corley is part of the panel for this discussion which airs June 22, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EST.  Use this link to access the second show:





CSKA is pleased to present a record of proceedings from this very important event held in Toronto in January of 2017.  We wish to thank Dr. Chad Nilson for his work in compiling the information from the workshop into this informative document.

"I think each of us left the two days energized and committed to working together to further improve the integration of research and evaluation into the model. It is really the only way to achieve the sort of outcomes all of us are looking for." said CSKA's CEO Cal Corley.


The Community Safety Knowledge Alliance (CSKA) is very pleased to announce the release of the final report on Technology-enabled Hubs in Remote Communities.  

This pilot project plan was prepared for CSKA by the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science and Justice Studies. Funding for this work was provided by Defense Research and Development Canada – Centre for Security Science. The accountable partner in this project is RCMP “F” Division.
