Dauphin is claiming a share of $1.3 million earmarked to help communities identify priority areas, develop safety and wellbeing plans and implement trhos strategies.

The province announced the Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Planning Pilot Project, which will be run in 12 Manitoba communities, late last week.

Dauphin mayor Christian Laughland said the program is still in the early stages, making it difficult to say exactly how it will roll out.

“Any time you can get a significant amount of money towards a pilot project like this from the province it is obviously a good thing and this is something that we have been building towards for the last couple of years, so it is exciting from that perspective,” he said. “We are looking forward to being able to do it and make our community safer because of it.”
