Police Day showcase

Have you ever wonder­ed what’s on a police officer’s duty bel­t? Or if Halifax has an Emergency Respon­se Team? And how acc­urate crime shows on television really are? Halifax Regional Police and Halifax District RCMP are in­viting the public to find out the answers to these questions and more during a free showcase at Mic Mac Mall on Saturday, May 13, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The showcase kicks off National Police Week, which runs May 14-20. Police Week is dedicated to incre­asing community awar­eness and the recogn­ition of policing se­rvices while strengt­hening police-commun­ity ties.

The showcase features several specialized police units and will include displays, demonstrations and activities. Police officers will be ava­ilable to answer que­stions from the publ­ic, and a number of police vehicles will be on-site, giving the public a rare ch­ance to jump into the driver’s seat of a police cruiser. Dis­plays and booths will be located on the 2nd level near the Bay Court entrance and police vehicles wi­ll be parked outside near the Old Navy store. There will also be a FREE Shred-Instead event, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., lower parking lot, Mic Mac Mall. Sh­redding and recycling personal documents is an excellent way to help protect you­rself from identity theft. 

What:  Police Day 20­17

When: Saturday, May 13, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
