It's Police Week in Ontario. Discover Policing! 

Port Hope - The Port Hope Police Service is inviting the community to join us in celebrating Police Week May from May 15 to 18 Since 1970, Police Week has been observed in May to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day, recognized internationally on May 15. This year's theme, Discover Policing, invites everyone to discover the many ways our police service is working to keep our communities safe. Police Week also encourages citizens to consider a rewarding and fulfilling career in law enforcement.

"Police Week provides an opportunity for members of our service to connect with the citizens we serve and showcase what police officers and other personnel do to contribute to community safety and well-being," said Cst. Tammie Staples.

Cst. Tammie Staples noted that because of the varied nature of police work, policing lets people apply the skills and experiences they've developed from their previous training, education, professional, and personal life. Policing offers opportunities for personal growth, continuous learning, a high level of job satisfaction, opportunities for specialization and for promotion as well as an excellent salary, benefits, and pension.

Police Week activities are scheduled throughout the week, including:
