SACKVILLE, N.B. – National Police Week is happening this week in Sackville and a number of activities are planned as a way for local RCMP to show their appreciation and to better connect with the community.

Police week is from May 12-16. On Monday, an expo was held at Tantramar Regional High School. Officers showed off their different methods of transportation to all who attended, including RCMP motorcycles, vans, cars and the CSI truck.

“Officers get to show the community what we do,” said Sackville RCMP’s community program officer Amelie Jarvis-Lavoie.

Another similar expo was held on Tuesday at Marshview Middle School.

On Thursday morning, RCMP will be conducting a meet and greet for students and staff at Salem Elementary School.

To end off Police Week, a free barbecue will be held for the community on Friday at the RCMP detachment at town hall from noon to 2 p.m.

There will be a bike rodeo; all must bring a bike and helmet to participate. The helicopter will be landed for all to see, and the Harley Davidson and other police vehicles will be shown off as well.

“Everyone is invited,” said Jarvis-Lavoie.

As part of the activities leading up to police week, the Sackville RCMP proposed a fun project for students to create an art project, based on what the RCMP means to them. All artwork submitted will be placed in the RCMP detachment Friday afternoon for viewing.

Sackville RCMP work closely with town council, non-profit organizations, business owners and schools – because of this they benefit from good communication, said Jarvis-Lavoie.

“And because of that, we solve crimes,” she said. “It leads to closing cases, leads to a safer Sackville.”

RCMP can’t succeed at what they do without community members and they want to show their appreciation for that, she said.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend these events.
