6 25TH ANNUAL CRIME PREVENTION GUIDE MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR OF SUMMERSIDE On behalf of the City of Summerside I would like to congratulate the PEI Police Association on the publication of their 25th Annual Crime Prevention Guide. This year’s theme “Family Violence Awareness” is an important topic for our citizens and our community as a whole. Happy and safe families are the foundation of happy and safe communities, so I am very pleased this subject will be the focus, as it has the potential to impact all of us. This guide is designed to inform the public on this important issue and provide information on the resources available on PEI to support anyone impacted by family violence. I also extend congratulations to all police officers whose dedication and commitment help ensure the safety of our residents and visitors to our community every day. You contribute greatly to our exceptional quality of life on PEI and for that we thank-you. The City of Summerside is proud to be a part of this publication and its efforts to promote healthy family relationships. Getting families the support they need when they need it is critical to ensuring all Island communities are safe and healthy places to live, grow and prosper. Congratulations! Sincerely, Bill Martin Mayor City of Summerside
