At a private ceremony at East Division, four Clarington youths were recently recognized for their commitment towards keeping our community safe. Cst. Stacey Sullivan presented each individual with the “Clarington Youth Citizenship Award,” a new award given to local students who assist the Durham Regional Police with preventing crime or providing information in an investigation.
All were commended for acts of incredible bravery. Their actions helped prevent crime, reduce violence and promote a safer environment in their school.
“Their actions have promoted a positive partnership between the youth and the police,” said Cst. Sullivan. “At the same time, the information they provided assisted us with intervening and preventing a crime of violence that may have resulted in injury to another student.”
This award recognizes individuals in an anonymous forum and reduces the stress of peer pressure, intimidation or verbal abuse from those less dedicated to the betterment of our community. All students are congratulated for a great job and an award well deserved.
