Const. Ian MacDonald said he hopes the recipients will choose to be "nice" next year.
"The front of the card is a bit provocative, but it's designed that way so people will read on and maybe reflect on the decisions they've made in the past," MacDonald said.
The recipients - some known by police to own firearms and other weapons - are asked to consider themselves and their families, and "make a better" lifestyle choice.
Each card includes a phone number that crooks looking for change can call. The calls would be returned on a case-by-case basis and would typically be confidential, MacDonald said.
Police admit they "stole" the idea from United Kingdom police detachments that use the cards to deter shoplifters.
