Rediscover Your YMCA

Astfrd-CQAA4c1QOakville-Halton Regional Police Service is proud to present the 14th annual Police Day. The event will take place on May 11, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Police Headquarters, 1151 Bronte Road, Oakville.

The celebration of policing in Halton will take place rain or shine, offering both indoor and outdoor venues on the grounds of Police Headquarters.

The 2013 theme is “Policing the Generations” and will focus on the many programs and unique service delivery that the HRPS provides to our community, including our seniors and young persons. There will also be a focus on technology and the digital era and how police services use this to enhance public safety.

Demonstrations will include our Tactical Rescue Unit, K-9, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle used by our Forensic Identification Unit– our “CSI in the Sky” and an interactive display by our Training Unit.

The public will also see demonstrations of some of latest technology being used by the police service including “Crime Mapping” and how we are now using social media.

The Children’s Safety Village will open its doors the young-ones where they can try their hand at driving on a closed course, while being taught important safety tips.

Learn about many of the internal policing units that make up our service and visit displays highlighting our partnerships.

Join us at 10:00 a.m. for the beginning of our festivities. The opening ceremonies will take place at 11:00 a.m. with our Police Pipes and Drums and Police Chorus. Watch as the Honour Guard Troop the Colours.

Lick’s Restaurant will provide a BBQ consisting of Halal and vegetarian products at a modest price.

A2ndz20CQAE3l80-1Family fun includes: magic, face painting, clowns, and a giant inflatable slide. This year we have a live band performing consisting of members of the Police Service and Honorary members of our Police Association.

The Halton Regional Police Service will also take part in an important province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner. Citizens merely drive in to the north driveway of Police Headquarters between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and will be directed to the designated area where they will remain in their vehicle and pass the old or unused medication to a police officer. Residents wishing to attend the Police Day festivities will then be directed to the parking locations.
