The Chatham-Kent Police Services Board is inviting students who are pursuing post-secondary education at a recognized institution in September of 2019 to submit a video addressing one of the three pillars of commitment to the community as stated by Chief Gary Conn in the 2018-2020 CKPS Business Plan.

Here are the details:


The purpose of this challenge is to engage students across Chatham-Kent to raise awareness and offer solutions to social issues facing our community. This initiative will give graduating students the chance to creatively produce a video to help combat road safety concerns, address mental health or ways to reduce property crimes. The campaign is designed as an opportunity for our youth to discuss public safety concerns and be part of the solution.


Students are asked to create a video that addresses road safety, mental health or property crimes. Students may submit one video per category. The video must not contain, depict or refer to anything crude, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, discriminatory, offensive or illegal. The video cannot contain, depict or refer to any irresponsible behaviour, risk to personal safety or damage to property.

Videos are to be no longer than 3 minutes in length. Videos will be accepted in either official language. Students must be enrolled at a school in Chatham-Kent.

Videos are welcome from students who wish to work independently or in groups. Should the video be a group effort, the group must elect a principal entrant to receive the prize and the sharing of such prize shall be the sole responsibility of the group.

Deadline to submit videos will be Friday, March 22, 2019 at 12 p.m.

Upload your video submission to You Tube and email the link to Const. Renee Cowell along with your name, school and grade.


The top video in each category will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship which shall be used to finance education at any level: university, college or technical school. The winning videos will be presented to the Chatham-Kent Police Services Board and showcased during Police Week in May 2019.
