Timmins Police Service applauds Alexia Racicot for her recent community minded achievements in promoting and serving on the DARE Youth Advisory Board.

Alexia is the only Canadian on the board and was selected over all other nominees in Canada.
Timmins Police Constable Rick Lemieux taught her DARE curriculum a little over 6 years ago.
in her words “I was chosen because they found what I was doing in my community was good for the program! 8 out of the whole board were chosen to speak about our experience as a Youth advocacy board member at the WFAD (http://www.wfad.se/) conference in Sweden. It was a once in a life time experience to share my knowledge and ideas with different representatives from different organizations from all over the world! I think our presentation had an impact on a lot of people because it’s not often that you see youth trying to advocate a program! They thought it was marvellous!”
She will be a guest speaker at this weekend DARE Youth camp at Camp Bickell
