Block Parent Program

We provide a network of police-screened, easily recognizable, safe homes for members of the community, especially children, to turn to in times of distress.

  • The Block Parent Program is a non-profit volunteer organization. It brings about safe streets for all citizens in Canada through encouraging co-operation between citizens, law enforcement agencies, School Boards, all levels of government and a host of businesses and service clubs involved in financial aid.
  • Bound together in a federation of Block Parent communities across Canada and working in co-operation with one another, Block Parents form a strong safety network for all Canadians.
  • A Block Parent is any responsible adult concerned about the well-being of children. The adult’s home is offered as a safe refuge for a child in trouble.
  • Anyone over the age of eighteen may apply regardless of their status; single, married, working, retired. They submit to security-screening through the application and agree to display their sign responsibly.
  • Many adults work outside their home and without Block Parent volunteers, a terrified child could go to several homes before finding someone to help. This delay could result in tragedy.

Children should use a Block Parent Home when alarmed by strangers or vicious animals. When he/she or a playmate is involved in an accident. When ill. When lost. When threatened by bullies.

Our Mission Statement

Youth have the right to go to and from school and attend school without fear of crime or violence

Our Purpose

Student Crime Stoppers is a program designed to encourage and assist students in “taking charge” of their environment, and contributing in a positive way toward making their schools crime-free.

We offer youth the tools to stand up against crime and violence without fear of reprisal or peer pressure, through an anonymous TIPS system to get the information to those who can stop the crime or violence.  The confidential TIPS system is available through this website.  Those with information solving cases in schools, on school property or at school events can improve our quality of life at every school.

Modeled after the community Crime Stoppers Program, Student Crime Stoppers provides a means for students who have information about criminal activity in or around their school, to pass it along to police without revealing their identity.

This program is not designed to identify young offenders and throw them into the judicial system. Rather, the basic
philosophy is that the offending student “took something out of society and must put something back in”.

Student Crime Stoppers is funded by community donations through Prince Albert Crime Stoppers Board, covering all schools in the Prince Albert area.

Student Crime Stoppers projects include Drug Free Zones, Training Sessions, School Volunteer Hours, Special Promotions, and Fund Raising Events.

Student Crime Stoppers Board

This group of representative students in your school works with a police liaison officer and a sponsoring teacher to publicize the program, advertise the Crime of the Week, and to raise money through school activities for the program.

The board manages the program. The board does not investigate crimes and never learns the name of the person who committed the crime.

What Happens With Your Tip

Your TIP will be routed directly to a Centralized TIP Service that is operated by  individuals trained to take Crime Stopper TIPs. It is then forwarded to the Prince Albert police liaison officer who works with your school. This officer will decide with the Principal whether the tip will be investigated by the police or by the school.

If there is a resolution to the crime, your Local Crime Stoppers Board will decide on your reward.
