  Air1 Drops By for Aboriginal Day Celebrations

Jun 16, 2013 14:27 ET

Durham Regional Police helped celebrate our First Nations community on Scugog Island in grand style on Saturday as Air1 dropped by for a visit during National Aboriginal Day.

Dozens of local kids got up close and personal with the Bell Jet Ranger III after it safely touched down on the fairgrounds set up on the Island to celebrate the annual event.

Also on hand was a K-9 team, one the DRPS boats, an ATV and other police units. It was a beautiful sunny day and a great opportunity for police officers to mingle with citizens of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

It's the first year DRPS was involved and everyone had a great time. DRPS CAO Stan MacLellan and North Division Inspector Mitch Colling were among the DRPS officials on hand to meet members of the public.
