Crime Prevention Ottawa hosted its 7th annual Community Safety Awards November 2, 2015, to celebrate individuals, programs and groups making out-standing contributions to the safety of our community.
Tammy Corner was recognized by Crime Prevention Ottawa for her exceptional work as a leader in safety and crime prevention. Tammy has been contributing to building healthier and safer communities in Ottawa for more than 15 years, first as a Community House Coordinator and then as PQ’s Health Promoter. During this period she has played a key role in the development and implementation of the Safe People, United Neighbours and Levers of Change Projects and has contributed to many city-wide initiatives including developing the guide for “Creating the Change We Want,” which is now being used to engage and train resident leaders across the city. One of Tammy’s greatest strengths is her ability to engage and support residents. She has a unique ability to see the best in everyone and to reflect people’s strengths and capacities back to them. She works with residents where they are, and builds deep relation-ships of trust both between herself and her participants as well within the groups she’s leading. She is a connector of people and instinctively builds community through every activity in which she’s involved.
In this spirit of community, Tammy feels strongly that this award should be shared with the many people who have contributed to the work of the Safe People, United Neighbors and UNLOC Projects and to other initiatives, big and small, that have helped to make our communities safer, healthier and stronger.
