CORNWALL, Ontario - Learn how local law enforcement agencies solve crimes as city cops mark Police Week by opening the doors to their east end station this Thursday.
A Cornwall Community Police Service cruiser.
The Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) is holding special events to celebrate Police Week, which begins May 11 and runs until May 17, with a focus on 'Building Community Partnerships.'
Members of the public will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the Cornwall Emergency Response Team (CERT), Identification Unit, and Motorcycle and Bike Units at the CCPS open house on May 15.
To showcase how police use technology to solve crimes, a new cruiser with Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) will be on display.
Local Grade 4, 5 and 6 students will also be participating in Police Week in a modified obstacle course to experience the physical challenge of policing.
Several law enforcement agencies and community partners have teamed up with CCPS for the annual week-long event: Canadian Nation Railway Police (CN), Ontario Provincial Police (O.P.P.), Royal Canadian Mountain Police (RCMP), Victim Services, Assault Sexual Assault Program (ASAP), Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA), Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), Child and Youth Advocacy Center (KOALA), Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU), and the Tobacco Enforcement Unit.
