Constable Lyndsey Pilkington relates to people. She can use her words to talk suspects into cooperating instead of using force when it is not needed. Treating people civilly and humanely goes a long way into gaining respect and trust from people, whether it be someone who has made a wrong choice and are about to be arrested or making the difference in a child’s life that doesn’t have any guidance from their parents or caregivers.
Constable Pilkington is someone that children, both boys and girls, look up to. Whether it is her teaching and social work background, or her love for sports, children flock to Officer Pilkington. There have been many visits to schools and daycares from Lyndsey, for the children to be able to trust police officers and not be afraid. Officer Pilkington has made a significant difference in our community of Sault Ste. Marie. A job extremely well done!
