Durham Regional Police Service officers, Auxiliary officers, civilians and volunteers are at the Oshawa Centre all week speaking to the public about Police Week.
An annual national event, this year's theme, "Working Together for Safer Communities," highlights the teamwork required to keep our communities safe. Through the combined efforts of DRPS, government agencies, businesses and individuals of all ages, together we can ensure safe and healthy communities.
The police displays in the lower level of the Oshawa Centre include counterfeit money and detection equipment, along with crime prevention and recruiting information. Members of the community will be able to see some of our police vehicles and have an opportunity to speak to officers about what they do every day to keep communities safe and the preventative methods citizens can do to better protect themselves.
Representatives from a partnering agency, such as "Neighborhood Watch" will also be in attendance, as well as members of the DRPS Communications branch and Domestic Violence Investigations.
Police week is also an excellent opportunity for individuals considering a career in policing to find out more information. Because of the varied nature of police work, it's a profession where people will apply the skills and experiences they have developed from their previous training, education, professional and personal life.
Check out the DRPS display from Monday through to Friday this week.
