Would you like an opportunity to meet your local officers and some of the volunteers that support police operations across Nova Scotia? RCMP detachments across Nova Scotia are opening their doors to citizens this week to ‘Connect to our Communities’, the theme for Police Week 2014.
May 11th to 17th is national police week. During this period, the RCMP open its doors to the public for open houses. Many of which will occur on May 14th, 2014. Police officers and Auxiliary constables will be available to answer questions about public safety and security, as well as police programs and initiatives. C/Supt. Brian Brennan, the Commanding Officer of RCMP in Nova Scotia will also host an open house at the new RCMP headquarters in Burnside.
‘We look forward to meeting and connecting with Nova Scotians throughout the week,’ says C/Supt. Brian Brennan, Commanding officer for RCMP in Nova Scotia. ‘The public plays a critical role in helping us solve crime and keep neighbourhoods safe to raise our families. Open houses are great opportunities to take them behind scenes and help them better understand the work we do.’
