1 SUICIDE PREVENTION AWARENESS MESSAGE FROM THE PEIPA PRESIDENT On behalf of the members of the Prince Edward Island Police Association, I am very pleased to introduce our 32nd Annual Crime Prevention Guide, which tackles the very difficult topic of Suicide Prevention Awareness. The intent of this publication is to offer information and resources in order to prevent anyone from taking their own life, by recognizing the signs and behaviors of children and adults that may be at risk. This publication is made possible by the generous contributions and support of many individuals, business owners and organizations throughout the province, and we are very grateful for their contributions that allow us to continue to publish our annual publications that reach PEI’s citizens and educate our communities on a variety of important crime prevention issues. Proceeds are also used to support PEIPA activities and further our Police Association’s community involvement and support, including a $1,000.00 donation to Kids Help Phone, which provides 24/7 support and counselling for children to get the help that they need. Please stay safe! Sincerely, Sgt. Ron MacLean President PEI Police Association EXECUTIVE MEMBERS Ron Kennedy Vice-President East Jason Blacquiere Vice-PresidentWest Allan Kelly Recording Secretary Tim Keizer Treasurer Dale Corish DirectorWest Mark Newcombe Director East
