The Community Safety Knowledge Alliance is pleased to announce the appointment of Norman E. Taylor
as Editor-in-Chief for its flagship Journal of Community Safety and Well-Being. In this capacity, Norm will
manage all day-to-day editorial and content-related operations of the Journal. As one of the original
architects of the Journal, Norm had graciously carried out these same responsibilities on a volunteer
basis since the Journal’s launch in April 2016.
Norm comes to this role with extensive related knowledge and experience. For almost 40 years he has
been an independent advisor, educator, author and researcher, concentrating his practice in the past 20
years in the field of policing and community safety.
“We are very pleased to have Norm as editor-in-chief for the long term. Under his editorial leadership,
the Journal is already having strong impact”, said CSKA CEO Cal Corley. “Just watch where he will take it
“We conceived of the Journal believing that the growing intersections among human services, public
health, policing and criminal justice could support a new outlet for knowledge exchange and emerging
social science”, said Taylor. “Now, with 6 issues already behind us, and over 40 strong articles spanning
original research to social innovation commentaries, I am excited and honoured to be selected to help
carry this unique publication to another level.”
