Hundreds of kids took part in the 32nd annual Toronto Police Children's Games at Variety Village May 10. The Games give an opportunity for 250 children with special needs from across Greater Toronto to enjoy a wide range of cooperative and competitive games alongside Service members. The Toronto Police Amateur Athletic Association, Toronto Police Association and the TPS Senior Officers' Organization supported the Games. Toronto Fire and Emergency Medical Services also created displays.
