RCMP in Prince George are raising awareness on victims of crime all next week.

The theme is “Take Five: Be the Change” and Victim Services Co-ordinator Krista Levar says the seminars focus on men to get to the problem at its source and she says it isn’t as difficult as it sounds.

Events will be held around the city, from workplace bullying to protecting yourself to identity theft.

Over the 5 days, six provocatively themed messages and training events will take place as follows:
