From May 13 to 19, the Nova Scotia RCMP will celebrate Police Week by providing Nova Scotians with a closer look at Canada’s national police force. National Police Week began in 1970 as a way for police to connect with their communities and increase awareness about the services they provide. Community policing is at the heart of Police Week, it’s an opportunity for members of the community to come together, meet their neighbours and connect with local police.
