Islanders and Crime Stoppers PEI Win International Award

It was announced that Crime Stoppers PEI and the Charlottetown Islanders were awarded the 2021 Crime Stoppers International Specialized Training and Program Award. This international recognition, which had over 1700 eligible programs from around the world was in response to the provincial anti-bullying campaign that was organized and executed by the two organizations. In partnership, the Islanders and Crime Stoppers PEI conducted a series of school visits to discuss the harm of bullying on students and ways it can be eliminated. In addition, an anti-bullying “Pink T-Shirt” design contest was also held.

“Although the goal of this program is not to gain recognition, it is an honour to be recognized with Crime Stoppers PEI on a global level,” commented Jason MacLean, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Charlottetown Islanders. “This program has been and will continue to be one of the most important things we do as an organization. We are not only educating our players on the importance of being good role models we are influencing today’s youth in a way that bullying may be eliminated in the future.”

The presentation to students across Prince Edward Island was to raise awareness of bullying, what constitutes bullying, and the unacceptability of this type of behaviour.

The partnership between the Islanders and Crime Stoppers PEI has surpassed 10 years and will look to continue to educate and work with the Islands youth for years to come.
