The Red Deer RCMP recognized the work of Kimberly Haugen, with Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society and Brittany Ashmore a Crown Prosecutor for their collaboration and efforts in helping youth and victims of domestic violence.

Kim Haugen is a domestic violence case worker that collaborates with the Red Deer RCMP to offer safety planning to victim families and individuals.

“I am very honoured by this recognition…,” said Haugen continuing, “To be recognized by the RCMP for my work is very memorable for me.”

Haugen recognized that the collaboration with Red Deer RCMP was important for her work at the Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society as well, “It’s a positive working relationship and I hope that it continues on so we can use each other’s resources to better assist the families or individuals.”

The RCMP formed a partnership with Brittany Ashmore in 2016 to help aid them in getting youth appropriate resources after be charged for criminal activities.

“The partnership with Brittany Ashmore enabled the Red Deer RCMP intervention unit to better aid youth in Red Deer and overall reduce the recidivism of some of Red Deer’s youth,” noted Constable Sean Morris.

Brittany Ashmore humbly accepted the recognition, noting that her job was made easier with the work of officers like Constable Sean Morris and Corporal Karyn Kay.

“We’ve managed to address and put them in contact with resources that they wouldn’t otherwise have. To see and to hear follow-ups from our partners at CFS (Central Alberta Child and Family Services) and sometimes asides from some officers…” said Ashmore, “It’s really wonderful to hear how they’ve used that to bounce forward and make the best of themselves. The vast majority just find themselves in a bad situation,” said Ashmore proudly.

Together, the Red Deer RCMP, Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society, and Alberta Justice are stronger in supporting and rehabilitating victims of unfortunate events and circumstances and with their continued collaboration Central Alberta is made a little safer.
