Police Week in Ontario is an annual event dedicated to promoting crime prevention, recognition, and awareness of police services in the community. It is also an opportunity to commend current police officers for their dedication and commitment in keeping our communities safe.
Since 1970, Police Week has been observed in May to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day, recognized internationally on May 15. This year, May 14-20 will be designated Police Week in Ontario.
This year’s provincial theme is “Working Together for Safer Communities”. It supports a collaborative approach towards safer and healthier communities in Ontario, while also recognizing the important role of the police in helping to achieve that goal. Further, it celebrates the positive relationships between local police officers and their community.
The Brockville Police Service has a number of activities planned for Police Week which include:
New Hope Church from 10:00-1:00pm
