The Cornwall Police Service held its Annual Open House on May 15 at the Crime Reduction & Community Partnerships office on Montreal Road. Community members had the chance to meet CPS members and other local law enforcement agencies, such as the RCMP and OPP.

The event showcased specialty units and programs, and attendees browsed police vehicles. Highlights included an RCMP boat, the Border Services K9 Unit, a forensic unit vehicle, and a Conservation Officer’s vehicle with a decoy deer.

“This is an annual event. Every year during Police Week, we have a community open house. Many of the local law enforcement agencies come to interact with the public,” said Cst. Pat Huygen.

“This is the third year that I’m involved in it. It’s a good family event. Kids come out and have a really good time seeing all these interesting things they don’t usually get to see,” added Huygen.

The Optimist Club of Cornwall provided a BBQ, and families enjoyed free hot dogs.
