Nova Scotia RCMP celebrates National Volunteer Week, Dartmouth, N.S.

This week, the Nova Scotia RCMP is recognizing National Volunteer Week (April 12-18) and the various volunteer organizations that contribute to policing operations in Nova Scotia.

Created 12 years ago, National Volunteer Week is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to collectively recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s 13.3 million volunteers.

‘Without the help of our volunteer family, the RCMP as Nova Scotia’s Provincial Police would not have the community outreach activities that we do’ says A/Commr. Brennan. ‘Volunteers contribute to the overall success of our policing programs and thus the safety and security of the Nova Scotia communities that we serve.’

A/Commr. Brennan adds ‘National Volunteer Week is an excellent time to reiterate just how important these volunteers are.’

Each day this week, the Nova Scotia RCMP will be highlighting several of its individual volunteer organizations on social media. Citizens are encouraged to visit our Facebook page (Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia) and Twitter account (@rcmpns) throughout the week to learn more.
