Doucette's award

The Toronto Sun's Chris Doucette will be down at Toronto Police headquarters today to pick up a Crime Stoppers award for a 2008 teen crime story.

It is the Toronto Crime Stoppers' Best Crime of the Week in Print Media Award and the teens and technology help fight crime story was from Aug. 14.

Today's Sun story says the winning story described how three teenaged members of the Toronto Police Youth in Policing initiative went to a shooting scene in Parkdale and recorded a video appealing for tips. His video was also posted on YouTube and Facebook.

Congrats, Chris.

Rob Lamberti, your award-winning partner in crime, must be a positive influence on the police desk.

But Chris, the rewrite guy in us can't resist noting your 50-word lead in a recent story.

Tight and bright, tight and bright.
