Cst. Sarah Beckett Memorial Scholarship
Cst. Sarah Beckett lost her life in a tragic automobile crash in 2016. Subsequently, the Commission created the scholarship to raise awareness of traffic safety issues and highlight the community service provided by police. The Commission is responsible for traffic safety education programs and makes recommendations to the CRD Board to increase road safety in the region. The Commission will award the $2000 scholarship annually to a post-secondary student based on demonstrated academic achievement, financial need, community service record, and an expressed interest in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
This year, the Capital Regional District (CRD) Traffic Safety Commission has given scholarships to two Camosun College students. Monica Amos received the fifth annual $2,000 Cst. Sarah Beckett Memorial Scholarship. Bryce Schiebel received an $1,800 scholarship from the Vancouver Island Slain Police Officers Fund and Deputy Commissioner Jennifer Strachan Retirement Donation.
