It’s National Police Week, and celebrations are virtual again this year

This year’s theme is ‘Working together to keep our communities safe’

May 9-15 marks National Police Week, and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrations will take place virtually this year.

This year’s theme is “Working together to keep our communities safe,” Greater Sudbury Police said today.

“We thank all of our members, both sworn and civilian, for their dedication to community safety and well-being,” said the website. “We also thank you, our community members, for your ongoing support.”

National Police Week began in 1970 as a way for the police to connect with their communities and to increase awareness about the services they provide.

Typically, police services would host a community event to engage with community members; however, for the second year in a row, celebrations are being held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Greater Sudbury Police will be introducing the public to various members and units of the service over social media this week. So keep an eye out for that.
