Police Week is off to a great start in London.
Officers set up at the Western Fair Farmers’ Market for the Coffee with a Cop event on Sunday where residents had the chance to chat with officers about the work they do.
Zahra El-Assily, a Grade 6 student at CC Carruthers, was chosen as Student Police Chief for the Day on Monday after being nominated by the Boys and Girls Club.
Constable Sandasha Bough tells AM980 more about Police Week.
“Police Week in Ontario is an annual event and it’s dedicated to promoting crime prevention, recognition, and awareness of police services within the community,” she said. “It’s also an opportunity to commend current police officers for their dedication and commitment to keeping our community safe.”
Constable Bough encourages people to check out what they’re doing online.
“We’ll be posting pictures throughout the week of things we have going on as well as upcoming events,” she said.
The public can also follow the hashtag #PoliceWeekONT on Twitter.
On Tuesday, officers will run a private event in Cherryhill for seniors, and they’ll also run a crime prevention display at Westmount Mall on Wednesday.
