Tantus, together with our partners PolicyWise for Children & Families (PolicyWise) and DarkHorse Analytics have been awarded the Planning Study Phase of the Alberta Justice and Solicitor General (AJSG) Alberta Community Safety Data Analytics Lab (ACSDAL) project.

The AJSG Public Security Division is contemplating a multi-phased, multi-year project to establish the Lab with the intent to address the longstanding desires expressed by Police Services and JSG to improve provincial data sharing, research, and analysis of police and community safety information.  Additionally, the Lab will assist in meeting the government’s platform commitment to improve public-facing justice system data and information for the Public’s Right to Know legislation.  Ultimately, the Lab would fill current evidence gaps by improving data access and data connections through formalized and critical partnerships with academic institutions, JSG, and other ministries, as well as municipal, RCMP, and First Nations Police Services.
