POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 7 From the Publisher “Providing quality, professional marketing and fundraising services on behalf of high-profile, non-profit organizations.” Each year, the Police Association of Nova Scotia publishes these Crime Prevention Guides as a result of financial contributions from residents of the province and business representatives. With their generous support for our annual campaign, PANS is able to give back to Nova Scotia communities through donations to various local charities and youth-oriented programs, in an effort to keep our younger generation from experiencing the negative effects of many of the topics discussed in these annual guides. This 42nd Annual Crime Prevention Guide focuses on the topic of Children’s Internet Safety. Our goal is to educate children, youth and adults on the potential hazards and risks related to the use of the Internet, and to provide information, tools and strategies for children so they can better protect themselves online. On behalf of the Police Association of Nova Scotia, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every contributor to our 2012 Telephone Appeal, which allowed us to publish this Crime Prevention Guide. This unique publication is distributed free-of- charge each year to schools, libraries and public facilities, and it is also available online at the New Brunswick Police Association's website -, making it easily accessible to everyone. Your comments or suggestions regarding these publications are always welcome and we look forward to speaking with you again this year during our Annual Telephone Appeal. Respectfully, Mark T. Fenety President Fenety Marketing Services
