An­napo­lis RCMP pulls out all the stops for Po­lice Week fun

Annapolis Valley Register - - NEWS - .*%%-&50/

When the gates open on Po­lice Week ac­tiv­i­ties at Ro­tary Park May 13, there will be he­li­copters, boats, fire trucks, at least one am­bu­lance, and search and res­cue ve­hi­cles.

Did we men­tion cop cars, cake, and a bar­be­cue? And it’s all free.

An­napo­lis District RCMP is invit­ing the public to cel­e­brate Na­tional Po­lice Week and Canada 150 on May 13 on Ro­tary Park in Middleton.

Na­tional Po­lice Week runs May 16 to 20 and pro­vides the public a chance to meet lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cers and learn about the peo­ple, ser­vices and equip­ment that make up Canada’s na­tional po­lice force, said Const. David Fair­fax.

On May 13, An­napo­lis District RCMP will host a public open house at Ro­tary Park fea­tur­ing RCMP mem­bers, se­nior safety, and An­napo­lis Val­ley Traf­fic Ser­vices.

He said in ad­di­tion, many of the RCMP’S com­mu­nity part­ners will be there in­clud­ing Cana­dian mil­i­tary per­son­nel, mem­bers of fire ser­vices from through­out An­napo­lis District, EHS, An­napo­lis County Ground Search and Res­cue, Depart­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources, Crime Stop­pers, MADD, Neigh­bor­hood Watch, and oth­ers.

Although it’s not con­firmed yet, ru­mour has it as many as three he­li­copters could be there. And if last year’s open house is any in­di­ca­tion, the chop­pers will be a big at­trac­tion with kids get­ting tours of the big ma­chines.

“An­napo­lis District RCMP will also take this op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate Canada 150,” said Fair­fax. “Join us for the of­fi­cial procla­ma­tion and cake-cut­ting at 1 p.m.”

Middleton Fire Depart­ment will be pro­vid­ing a bar­be­cue on site dur­ing the event.

The An­napo­lis District RCMP open house will take place be­tween 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Ro­tary Park on Mar­shall Street in Middleton. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to join your lo­cal RCMP for a day of fam­ily-friendly fun and cel­e­bra­tion.
