BROCKVILLE – From giving high-schoolers a taste of policing to senior safety, Brockville police are taking part in a number of activities to mark Police Week.

The week has been observed for 46 years to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day, which was recognized yesterday (May 15) across Canada.

The theme this year is Discover Policing for Safer Communities.

Licenced restaurateurs and bar owners got details this afternoon on how to keep their businesses and the community safe during an event at New Hope Tabernacle.

Tomorrow, the Brockville Community Hub will launch with an opening ceremony at 3:30 p.m. at 280 Bartholomew Street. A one hour open house will follow at 4 p.m.

Seniors at Bridlewood Manor will get a safety presentation on Wednesday.

The week will cap off at the Brockville campus of St. Lawrence College, where up to ten students from each local high school will take part in a police training exercise from 8:30-2:30 p.m.
