POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 11 From the Publisher “Providing quality, professional marketing and fundraising services on behalf of high-profile, non-profit organizations.” The Police Association of Nova Scotia publishes an Annual Crime Prevention Guide to educate the public on serious community concerns. This 43rdAnnual PANS Crime Prevention Guide focuses on the delicate subject of Suicide Prevention Awareness in order to shed some light on this very dark issue. This Community Guide is made possible as a result of financial contributions from residents and business representatives throughout the province whose generous support makes it possible for the members of the Police Association of Nova Scotia to give back to their communities through donations to various local charities and youth-oriented programs. On behalf of PANS, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every contributor of our 2013 Telephone Appeal. This unique publication is distributed free-of-charge each year to schools, libraries and public facilities and it is also available online at PANS's website at, 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
