Going Green for Mental Health

The #GetLoud for Mental Health campaign ran from May 7 to 13. In addition to numerous mental health awareness activities, the Thunder Bay Police Service teamed up with other first responders to show support for having a dialogue about mental health and mental illness. 

Positive Ticketing Campaign

The Positive Ticketing Campaign launched in May. The campaign rewards children who are "caught" by officers doing good. Wearing proper-fitting bicycle helmets and practicing safe cycling techinues, for example, could lead to a child being ticketed through the Positive Ticketing Campaign. These positive tickets come with a free Froster courtesy of Mac's Convenience Store.
