POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 5 From the Publisher “Providing quality, professional marketing and fundraising services on behalf of high-profile, non-profit organizations.” On behalf of the Police Association of Nova Scotia, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every advertiser and sponsor of our Annual Telephone Appeal, allowing this unique publication to be distributed throughout the community, to schools, libraries and public facilities and also available online at, making it easily accessible to everyone. PANS publishes an Annual Crime Prevention Guide to educate the public on important community concerns. This 51st Annual Crime Prevention Guide targets the subject of Suicide Prevention Awareness and is designed to help prevent suicides by recognizing the signs and behaviors of children and adults that may be at risk. This publication is made possible as a result of financial support from residents and business representatives throughout the province. With their generous support for the activities of the Police Association of Nova Scotia, PANS is also able to give back to their communities through donations to various local charities and programs for youth, such as their recent $3,000 donation to KIDS HELP PHONE, which provides 24/7 support and counselling to help young people get the help they need. Last year, young people in Nova Scotia reached out to the Kids Help Phone over 68,000 times, which represents 94% more contacts than in 2019, as a result of COVID-19 challenges. We welcome comments or suggestions regarding these publications and always look forward to speaking with you each year during our Annual Telephone Appeal. Respectfully, Mark T. Fenety President Fenety Marketing Services
