The “Prevention is better than Cure” campaign is a Community safety/crime prevention initiative performed at the Horizon Theatre in Wiley Park. It’s Main goal is to approach people from areas that place them in a greater risk of becoming offenders and or victims of crime (according to statistics) to take action in creating and implementing new methods to prevent criminal incidents, which lead to criminal activity. These methods are addressed towards young people by using art as a tactic of early intervention and diversion from crime, producing community safety. Click here for more info.
