Discover Policing!

The Fredericton Police Force will be celebrating the upcoming Canadian National Police Week with an information and equipment display at the Regent Mall, May 15th to May 19th. This annual celebration enables police agencies across Canada to increase public awareness of the work that they conduct in their local communities. The Fredericton Police Force is proudly committed to community outreach with various ongoing initiatives including the Seniors Advisory Committee, LBGTQ2 Pride Committee, Cultural Diversity Advisory Committee, Victim / Witness Volunteers, Multicultural Liaison, Kids and Kops Summer Camp, and the Auxiliary Policing program. All of these programs and committees will be highlighted throughout National Police Week. As well the Harley Davidson police motorcycle and a new robot used by the Explosive Disposal Unit will be on display.

Community police programming is the focal point of the entire week and we would encourage interested members of the public to stop by the Mall and speak with our officers and police volunteers and see how you also can become involved.

The exhibit will be on display from Monday, May 15 through Friday, May 19, 2017 during regular mall hours.

Also, the National Police Week coincides with National Road Safety Week, which is a police initiative supporting the national effort aimed at making Canada’s roads the safest in the world. Road safety is one of the top priorities for the Fredericton Police Force with its established Traffic Enforcement Unit dedicated to making our streets safer for everyone.  

While raising awareness about safe driving practices, the Fredericton Police Force will focus on behaviours that put drivers, pedestrians, and other road users most at risk:  impaired driving, distracted driving, driving without a seat belt, improper child car seat use, speeding and intersection related incidents involving drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

The Fredericton Police Force believes that it is up to all road users to share responsibility in making our streets and Highways safer. We would also encourage drivers to practice defensive driving awareness and report incidents of suspected impaired driving.

An essential part of policing is to save lives and reduce the chances of injuries on our roads.
