5 28TH ANNUAL CRIME PREVENTION GUIDE MESSAGE FROM THE PEIPA PRESIDENT EXECUTIVE MEMBERS On behalf of the members of Prince Edward Island Police Association, I’d like to thank the citizens and business members in our Island communities for supporting our Annual Crime Prevention Guide project. We very much appreciate your financial contributions and your interest in our community publication. Our 28th Annual Crime Prevention Guidefocuses on Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness. Medications are often a necessary component of the treatment for many ailments, and cause no ill effects when used as prescribed. Some people who suffer from drug addiction take prescription drugs just for the “high” they receive from the drug, and this behavior can escalate and cause an increase in street drug usage. The impacts of abuse of prescription medication have been identified as an increasing concern for many Islanders.
