A group of five students had the opportunity to get eight weeks of lessons from instructors at the Riding Academy at the Horse Palace thanks to a partnership between 32 Division and Lawrence Heights Middle School. Community Response Constables had the chance to get to know students through the program to help build trust between the police and the community as well as give students a chance to learn something entirely new.
