M’CHIGEENG — Everyone in the Manitoulin area can play a leadership role in making our communities safer, Chief Nahwegahbow said today, at the kickoff of Police Week in M’Chigeeng.
“Our partnership with the community is essential in preventing crime and making our citizens safer,” Chief Nahwegahbow said. “The police can’t do it alone. We need the support of every resident of Manitoulin. “Police Week is a great opportunity to engage people in our community on topics such as crime prevention programs and community policing.”
The theme of Police Week 2012 is “Leading the way to a safer tomorrow.” Police Week runs from May 13 – 19 in Ontario and is dedicated to increasing community awareness and recognition of policing services and strengthening partnerships between police and the community.
Police Week 2012 will be marked by UCCM Anishnaabe Police with traditional displays throughout Manitoulin, as well as through our website, www.uccmpolice.com. The public is also invited to an open house at our Police Service Tuesday, May 15 – Friday, May 18, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. And, just by asking about the programs and services, or with a simple tour of our office, we have a free gift for each person.
So, help make our community a safe, strong and prosperous community. Come out and support law enforcement and their supporting agencies during Police Week!
