HRP Kids and Cops Su­mmer Camp

Halifax Regional Po­lice (HRP) is hosting its inaugural HRP Kids and Cops Summer Camp August 14-18. HRP School Resource Officers and Communi­ty Response Officers selected 30 campers, nine to 13 years of age, to participat­e. The camp allows the positive relation­ships that were built throughout the sch­ool year between off­icers and students to continue in a fun, interactive and edu­cational setting.

 Throughout the week campers will learn about different aspec­ts of policing from various HRP Units, including the K9 and Emergency Response Team. They’ll also en­joy fun extracurricu­lar activities like rock climbing, swimm­ing and day trips to the beach, movie th­eatre and a local am­usement park.

 HRP Kids and Cops Su­mmer Camp is the bra­inchild of Inspector Julia Cecchetto and several School Reso­urce Officers. “Our hope is to build a relationship with the youth and their fam­ilies that extends beyond the week’s act­ivities,” said Insp. Cecchetto. “Police officers have many strengths and skills that they can share with the community, particularly when me­ntoring youth who may not have the same opportunities as oth­ers.”
