High school students eyeing a career in law enforcement are being courted by the Capital Regional District’s Traffic Safety Commission.
For a fifth year, the commission is calling for applications for the $2,000 Const. Sarah Beckett Memorial Scholarship. The award is given annually to a Greater Victoria post-secondary student based on academic achievement, financial need, community service and interest in pursuing a policing or law enforcement career.
Applications are accepted until June 25, with forms online at crdtrafficsafety.ca/cst-sarah-beckett-memorial-scholarship.
Beckett was killed in a crash while on duty in 2016. Later that year the commission began raising funds to create the scholarship, as a way to raise awareness of traffic safety issues and the community service provided by police.
