Cornwall, Onatrio — The Cornwall Community Police in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cornwall / SDG After School Program at Central Public School has successfully completed the Junior Constable Program. With the direction of Cst. Jason Mines, the Junior Constable Program is designed to be fun, interactive and educational while fostering positive interaction with police.
Off-duty officers attended the After-School Program twice a month during this past school year to participate in sports activities and also for the youth to learn about policing and the tools available to various departments within the Cornwall Community Police Service. The youth had hands-on access to different areas of policing tools such as speed radar, fingerprinting equipment, handcuffing, physical training and bicycle safety just to name a few.
The Graduation ceremony was held on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. at Central Public School Library. All Junior Constables were issued honorary police badges and certificates in presence of their parents, Chief of Police Daniel Parkinson, and executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG Jacquie Richards. The Cornwall Community Police Service and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cornwall/SDG are proud to work in partnership to provide our youths this extraordinary program.
