For more than 20 years, the Regina Police Service has been putting on an annual showcase to show the community how they operate.
Thursday, that tradition continued.
Josh Jakubowski, a tactical crime analyst with RPS, helped organize the annual event, and says it’s a great way to educate kids about the work of police officers.
“It’s important for kids to see police officers in this setting,” said Jakubowski. “It takes the fear away from policing. It creates a comfort level that obviously we want our community members to have. We’re only here to help, right?”
Close to 3,000 students and community members attended the event.
Jakubowski says for the last few, the turnout has been so great they’ve had to switch venues to the Brandt Centre to accommodate the crowd.
