Funded by ProAction Cops and Kids and the Division’s Community Police Liaison Committee, this year’s event was held on May 16.

“The event is a culmination of a year-long program where I partner with elementary school teachers to work with children in Grades Three to Eight throughout the school year,” said Constable Eric Berridge, the Division’s school community liaison officer.

The day started with the Carleton Village Sports & Wellness Academy School choir singing the national anthem.
