RCMP Trading Cards and Coloring Contest

The 2012 Edition of the Wood Buffalo RCMP Trading Cards are here!

The collection has 23 cards that RCMP members will be handing out to youth in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo throughout the summer months and into the fall. Sponsored by Suncor Energy, the project was lead by Cst. Christina Wilkins from the Community Policing Unit with the goal of promoting positive police-youth interaction. 

Children are encouraged to collect as many cards as they can. Youngsters who manage to collect at least 15 different cop cards will be entered into a draw for a prize pack. The trading card competition kicked-off at the June Bug festival and continues until the end of September. Youth who would like to be entered in the draw can attend the Timberlea Detachment with their cards and fill-out a ballot. Ballots will be accepted until September 28, 2012.

The trading cards are a complementary addition to the RCMP Coloring Contest that has been held in previous years. This years’ coloring contest is on-going and entries can be picked-up and dropped-off to the Timberlea Detachment until August 31, 2012.

The winner of the coloring contest will also receive a prize pack and be named Police Chief for the Day! Questions about either of these youth initiatives can be directed to the Community Policing Coordinator
at 780-788-4245.
