South Simcoe Police Service Celebrating Police Week

Front-line Police Officers and Police Personnel Honoured for

Their Work in Keeping our Communities Safe

For Immediate Release: May 11, 2020

(Bradford/Innisfil, ON) South Simcoe Police Service is joining police services across Ontario and Canada in kicking off Police Week, a celebration of the work our front-line police officers, 9-1-1 communicators, civilian staff, and all members of our police service do to keep our citizens safe and healthy, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, Police Week runs from May 10 to 16, 2020. The theme in Ontario for the week is Leading the Way to Safer Communities, which focuses on the many ways that our police members help promote the safety and well-being of everyone in our communities.

The Covid-19 pandemic means that our annual open houses can’t be held as we have traditionally done during Police Week. Instead, we are having virtual open houses on our social media in order to maintain physical distancing while engaging with our residents and showcasing our members and specialized equipment.

The annual Police Week in Ontario is sponsored by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General. It is part of a national effort led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police to recognize and honour the work of police service members.
