On behalf of the Fredericton Police Force and the New Brunswick Association of Chiefs of Police I would like to acknowledge the tremendous value that our ongoing partnership with Muriel McQueen Fergusson Foundation and Research Center has provided over the past nine years. Representatives from MMF have been an active voice with NBACP and have been instrumental in developing and providing training to help police better intervene in cases of domestic and intimate partner violence. Specifically, the Fredericton and Saint John municipal Police Forces and provincial RCMP have all benefited from current research and training provided by the center. Through this partnership we have discovered better practices that help us serve and protect those suffering at the hands of domestic violence. We look forward to growing together and capitalizing further on what the MMF foundation and research center has to offer in the future.
