PaWES program presents police and player partnership possibilities
2015-11-12

A collaborative effort between the Sudbury Wolves Hockey Club and the Greater Sudbury Police Service could provide some wonderful benefits for all involved, most notably community youth groups.

Taking the lead in working hand in hand, the Wolves and the GSPS have announced the creation of the PaWES (Police and Wolves Educating Sudbury) program. The PaWes teams, which include both OHLers and local police staff, will be attending various community events, looking to educate the youth on topics including leadership, pride and teamwork.

"I know our players will enjoy the mentoring benefits provided by police officers, who will be taking the time to meet with our players, and talk to them about their experiences of living in Sudbury," noted Club President Blaine Smith.

"Our shared commitment to creating community safety and well-being begins by working with excellent leaders and partners," acknowledged Chief of Police Paul Pedersen in the joint media release.

"We are pleased to be teamed up with the Sudbury Wolves as part of the PaWES program. Through this collaborative partnership, we will have greater opportunities to reach the youth of our community."

Youth groups interested in having a "PaWES team" attend one of their events are asked to please contact Miranda Swain at the Wolves office (705-675-3941), or alternatively contact Staff Sargeant Craig Maki at (705) 675-9171 ext 2104.
