CSKA receives Motorola Solutions Foundation Public Safety Grant: Grant will help improve safety and wellbeing outcomes.

The Community Safety Knowledge Alliance today announced that it has received USD$80,000 as part of the Motorola Solutions Foundation’s public safety grant awards.

 The grant makes a significant contribution to enabling CSKA to carry out its mission of mobilizing and facilitating research in the development of a knowledge base to inform how community safety-related work is organized and delivered – all with the goal of improving safety and well-being outcomes for communities.

“Motorola has a long history as a partner in policing and community safety in Canada,” said CSKA Interim CEO Cal Corley. “We are tremendously grateful to the Foundation for its confidence and support in our quest to make a real difference in the health and safety of communities across Saskatchewan and Canada.”

“At a time when public safety is at the forefront of so many people’s minds in cities around the globe, we are proud to support programs that aim to improve safety and security in those communities,” said Matt Blakely, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation. “We are also proud to support organizations that honor the families of fallen first responders and improve safety education in the United States and Canada.”

The foundation gave a total of $3.95 million to 90 organizations in 2015, which will benefit 675,000 first responders and community members.

The Motorola Solutions Foundation serves as an investor and convener on issues that affect the safety of communities in countries worldwide, providing leadership in the sector to drive innovation and engage the network of those interested in these issues.
