Cst. Angela Sitaram was recognized for her hard work in the community by the Herbert H. Carnegie Future ACES Foundation on May 23. Acting as the Elementary School Liaison Officer for the Central West Division, Cst. Sitaram visits and participates in programs at 35 schools in Whitby.
Well known to her colleagues for her continuing research in educational opportunities, Cst. Sitaram helped initiate the Future ACES Positive Ticketing program in her district in 2012, with aims to spread to the rest of the region. The program encourages police officers to acknowledge young people in schools and communities “caught in the act” of demonstrating positive behaviour and making good decisions.
The Herbert H. Carnegie Future ACES Foundation develops initiatives based on character and ethical values of the Future ACES philosophy. This is a belief that encourages responsible citizenship, and challenges individuals to a continuous process of learning about one’s self and relations with others. Working with schools and community organizations, the foundation fosters harmony and good citizenship by deterring bullying, racism, violence, and cultural and religious intolerance.
Congratulations Cst. Sitaram.
