Oral Presentations

Officers are often asked to be judges for school oral presentations

Officers are also available for principals, teachers, students and parents for information on all of the above topics and act as liaison for the Police Service for such things as suspicious persons, traffic, bullying, and pedestrian safety.

Community Services officer's also work with crossing guards to ensure the safety of students.
