Our Summer Student - Timothy Young

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

PEI Crime Stoppers held it’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’s Vulnerable Persons Registry. She was promoted to Cpl. while on the watches and she is currently posted with the Major Crime Unit.

The Charlottetown Islanders Hockey club also support Crime Stoppers with their Anti-Bullying presentations in schools all across the Island.

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.

2017 Malcolm MacFarlane Volunteer of the Year Award

The inaugural award named for Malcolm MacFarlane of Summerside. During his lifetime Malcolm was involved in many community activities and groups. He supported the Summerside Boys and Girls club, Trinity United Church, Prince County Hospital, Minor Baseball, PEI Crimestoppers and many Insurance organizations. He was the first president of both the Maritime Mutual insurance association and the Canadian Mutual Insurance Association.
His diagnosis of ALS in 2009 quickly robbed him of his strength but never his spirit.
The recipient of the 2017 award was Eric Oulton from Summerside who emulates this spirit. Eric is a long serving member of our Board and contributes his time and effort on a regular basis to our efforts to make PEI a better place to live learn and do business.
We were fortunate to to have Malcolm's wife Margret and two of his children, Amy and David attend and present the award to Eric.

Congratulations Eric on this well deserved award and thank you to Margret, Amy and David for your presence.

The 2017 PEI Crime Stoppers Police Officer of the Year awards were presented on Friday May 19th. at a luncheon at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel. This event is held in conjunction with National Police week. Crime Stoppers holds the event to acknowledge and thank all the fine members and support staff of our Island Police Services that work 24-7 year round to make our communities safe. Crime Stoppers recognizes that often the men and women of our police services go above and beyond to make PEI a better and safer province, both on and off duty. The Police Officers of the Year Awards is an event designed to recognize that extra effort. Local radio personality Scott Chapman acted as Master of Ceremonies and guest speaker for the event was PEI Police Commissioner Gerard Mitchell.

Awards were presented in two categories; one to a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and one to a member of a Municipal Police Service. Nominees must have been currently working in the province of Prince Edward Island. Nominations were judged independently by a three person panel consisting of a retired RCMP officer, a retired Charlottetown Police Services officer and a member of the PEI Crime Stoppers board of directors.

The award for 2017 Municipal Police Officer of the Year went to Cst. Tim Keizer of the Charlottetown Police Services. Cst. Keizer was recognized for his ongoing and committed work with young persons in Island Schools and youth sports.

Shut Out Bullying - 2017

During the months of February and March 2017 our coordinator and members of the Charlottetown Islanders traveled to schools across the Island delivering a message of respect to students from Grade 3 to 9. It is hoped that by respecting each other students will not become involved in bullying. We also reminded students that if they are being bullied they are not alone and there are many people who care about them they should talk to. Our hope is that if even one person stops bullying or one person being bullied seeks help our efforts have been successful in making PEI a better place to live, LEARN and do business.

Shut Out Bullying 2016

During the months of January and February 2016 PEI Crime Stoppers Coordinator and members of the Charlottetown Islanders Jr. Hockey Club visited a number of schools across PEI to talk to students regarding bullying. Each of the players gave examples of how they or their friends had been bullied when they were younger and how it affected them. Students were reminded that you don't have to be friends with everyone but you should respect everyone. Players asked the students to make very day a Pink Shirt Day and to "Shut Out" bullying in their school. We had great receptions at all the schools we visited and want to thank the players, teachers and especially the students.

P.E.I. RCMP take on P.E.I. Rocket to raise funds to Make-A-Wish come true

March 4, 2013, Charlottetown, PE - The Commanding Officer of L Division RCMP, Prince Edward Island, has challenged the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League P.E.I. Rocket team to a game with a serious purpose. Upon learning all of the details about a Kensington boy named Carson, Chief Superintendent Craig Gibson was determined that Island RCMP could make his wish to get to Disney World a reality. After a quick assessment of the L Division hockey players to create the RCMP team, he put out the challenge to the popular and talented P.E.I. Rocket team and it was accepted quickly.

The game will take place Monday, March 11 at 7:45 in the home forum of the P.E.I. Rocket, Charlottetown Civic Centre Arena and tickets are on sale through their box office now.

Chief Superintendent Gibson said, I am honoured to take part in the Make-A-Wish project for Carson. After approaching the Make-A-Wish Foundation about granting this wish, I organized a working committee of employees who echoed my commitment to ensure that Carsons dream of going to Disney World with his family comes true. He added, When I found out that Carson loves hockey as much as he does, it struck a chord with me, especially his love of the Leafs, and thought it would be great if we could celebrate his love of hockey with our fund-raising too.

Several Island professional hockey players and coaches have donated items for a silent auction towards this magical mission along with local businesses. We have jerseys and team merchandise to be raffled or auctioned off in aid of the event such as RCMP Jersey signed by Commissioner Bob Paulson, a Sidney Crosby jersey, a P.E.I. Rocket Jersey signed by players, a framed and signed Adam McQuaid Stanley Cup picture, a Brad Richards signed picture, signed Brandon Gormey hockey stick, and several baskets of great products. Also, at the second intermission, those in attendance can take a shot for a car as the P.E.I. Ford Dealership has donated a 2013 Ford Focus for a Shoot for the Car contest.

Gordie Dwyer, Head Coach for the P.E.I. Rocket said, "We are very pleased to partner with the RCMP in reuniting the community for Carson's Wish. We look forward to facing off with our esteemed community partners and hope to see the community out in support."

Make-A-Wish describes Carson as a Kensington native, loves hockey and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Carson is a sweet outgoing young boy who loves everything about Walt Disney, especially Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He has many special needs including Autism, Cerebral Palsy and hes also non-verbal. None of this has stopped him from attending Queen Elizabeth Elementary school in Kensington and enjoying time spent with his friends and wonderful teachers. He also loves hanging out with his older brother and sister.

Daphne Carter, CEO of Make-A-Wish Foundation said, Were privileged to be a part of something so special and magical for kids like Carson. Knowing that his community is behind him 110% is just incredible. He has a marvelous family and a great community of people to help him. Thanks to everyone who came together to help grant Carsons wish. We know that family will be strengthened and renewed after their shared experience at Disney World.

Tickets are a deal at $5.00 and on sale through the Charlottetown Civic Centre box office. Call 902-629-6625 or purchase online at www.civiccentre.pe.ca Island RCMP and P.E.I. Rocket are aiming for a sell-out house to support in this effort and make Carsons wish come true.

Crime Stoppers Anti-Bullying Poster Contest

December 7, 2011 - Recognizing that Island schools are a major component of the Island community and that the role of PEI Crime Stoppers is to make PEI a better place to live and do business, PEI Crime Stoppers is launching a poster contest aimed at raising awareness of the potential negative effects of bullying on lives of students. The contest will be open to all secondary and high school students on PEI. in the Western, Eastern and French School Districts. Students are asked to produce an original poster depicting an anti-bullying message. The poster will be judged with prizes awarded to both secondary and high school students. Some of the posters developed by the students will be reproduced and introduced into Island schools to deliver their anti-bully message.
"The Eastern School District values the ongoing work of Crime Stoppers in our communities. Several intermediate and senior high schools are expected to participate in this year's anti-bullying initiatives which have strong ties to the curriculum and support our Caring Places to Learn policy," noted Ricky Hood Superintendent
The Western School Board is pleased to work with PEI Crime Stoppers on this anti-bullying initiative. This effort is very supportive to the anti-bullying work currently occurring across our schools, added Superintendent, Jane McMillan.

Crime Stoppers Coordinator Phil Pitts said We are hoping by working with the students and schools we can raise awareness of bullying, what constitutes bullying and that this behavior is not acceptable. It is hoped that together we can create a safer and better learning environment for the students and at the same time prevent those doing the bulling from going on to engage in more destructive antisocial behaviors as they get older.
