Police Week Launch
DRPS officially launched Police Week this morning at the Oshawa Centre. This year, the theme of Police Week is Building Bridges: Celebrating Police - Community Partnerships.
Chief Moreira kicked off the event and welcomed attendees to the display set up outside of Old Navy. Three of DRPS’ K9 units also helped launch Police Week and were a huge hit with everyone who stopped by. The display includes vintage cruisers and free DRPS swag.
Officers from DRPS’ Community Safety Unit will be hosting an information booth at the Oshawa Centre from Monday, May 15, through to Thursday May 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m daily. Members from the DRPS recruitment will also be at the booth from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. for anyone who has questions about a career at DRPS.
Police Week aims to celebrate the important role our police officers and personnel play in helping Canadian build and maintain healthy and safe communities in partnership with the communities we serve. The Tweet-a-Long with Sgt. Cst. Joanne Bortoluss scheduled for Thursday, May 18, 2023 has been re-scheduled to Wednesday May 17, starting at 9:00 a.m. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @DRPS using hashtag #DRPStweets
