Our Summer Student - Timothy Young
Date Posted: August 14, 2019
Timothy Young is a Charlottetown native who is presently starting his second year in a Bachelors in Film and Television Degree program at Sheridan College in Ontario. He has been covering PEI from tip to tip this summer to promote PEI Crime Stoppers.
His goal was to hit every store-front business in PEI to pitch the program, and to leave one of our two sided window stickers in the windows of each business. The purpose of the program is to increase awareness of the Crime Stoppers program to all Island Communities.
With only two weeks left in his time with us Timothy has reached out to over 1500 businesses across the Island. He has also helped us distribute Anti-Bullying posters to all Island schools and has been participating in our Parade Schedule this summer as well.
Job Well Done Timothy!

2019 Police Officer of the Year Awards
Date Posted: May 14, 2019
PEI Crime Stoppers held it?EUR(TM)s annual Police Officer of the Year Awards Luncheon today at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel. An award is given to one Municipal Police Officer and one RCMP Officer each year. The officers are nominated by members of the public and by co-workers and a panel of three judges review the nominations and decide on the winners.
The award is given to officers who go that extra mile in delivering Police Services to the public, both on and off duty. Most Police Officers go to work, never expecting awards of accolades. But some do the extra things that distinguish themselves from their peers.
We were joined today by the Hon. Bloyce Thompson, Minister of Agriculture and Land, Justice and Public Safety and Attorney General for the Province of Prince Edward Island to give some Opening Remarks and present the awards.
This year the winner of the RCMP award is Cpl Nick Doyle of Prince District RCMP. Cpl. Nick DOYLE grew up in Fredericton, NB and joined the RCMP in 2008. From 2008 to 2010 Cpl. DOYLE was a general duty officer at the East Prince RCMP Detachment, from 2010-2013 Cpl. DOYLE was part of the Prince District JFO Unit, where he distinguished himself as a hard working and resourceful Investigator. From 2013 to 2018 Cpl. DOYLE was part of the Federal Investigations Unit in Charlottetown, PE, and in March of 2018 Cpl. DOYLE was promoted back to the Prince District JFO Unit. He mentors new Police Officers and is known for being a true team player.
The winner of the Municipal Police Officer of the Year was Cpl Jennifer Dirscoll of the Summerside Police Service. Cpl Driscoll Joined the Summerside Police Service. Cpl. Driscoll joined the Summerside Police Service in May of 1988. She began her career in General Patrol, followed by a three year stint in the Major Crime Unit. In 2010 Cpl Driscoll took leave and worked for 2 years for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service. She returned to Summerside Police in 2012. She has been the driving force behind several Community Initiatives. These include the Christmas Coffee Card Promotion, Kids Shop with Cops and the City?EUR(TM)s Vulnerable Persons Registry.

Pink Shirt Design Winners
Date Posted: March 7, 2019
The employees of Westjet show off their Pink Pride on the 27th of February at the Charlottetown Airport. Thank-You ladies for your support of this worth while project!
Provincial Coordinator pictured with a grade 7 student at Ecole Sur Mur in Summerside, Brooklyn Blouin. Brooklyn is holding a poster that she designed as part of the Pink Shirt Design Contest. The judges realized that the poster was too detailed to put on a shirt, but felt it accurately expressed one of the many ways Bullying can marginalize some students in their own school. The poster has been re-produced by Crime Stoppers and will be circulated to as many schools as possible. Brooklyn was also presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for assisting Crime Stoppers in promoting the elimination of Bullying in Island Schools.
Provincial Coordinator for Crime Stoppers is pictured here with the runner up winner in the 2019 Pink Shirt Design Contest. Leah Wood is a grade 9 student at Englewood School and was presented with a hockey stick signed by all the members of the Charlottetown Islanders Hockey Club. The Charlottetown Islanders Hockey club also support Crime Stoppers with their Anti-Bullying presentations in schools all across the Island. Members of the team travel to schools and speak to grades 7 to 9 on Bullying with the Provincial Coordinator. The Islanders Hockey club also provide enough student passes for the entire student body of each school visited to attend one of their games.
Jackson Arsenault, a grade 7 student at Ecole Evangeline, is the Pink Shirt Design winner for the 2020 Pink Shirt. Pictured here with the Provincial Coordinator for Crime Stoppers in PEI, Scott Lundrigan. Jackson could pick between a new tablet or a cash prize.

Crime Stoppers wishes to thank ADL and the Charlottetown Islanders Hockey club for their continued support of this shirt design contest.
