West Bay neighbourhood policeman PC Leslie Franklin was on hand last Friday to make sure the students of Tiffany’s pre-school completed their annual Stride against cancer walk safely.
The event, which took place in the Bolton’s Avenue area, was supervised by school staff, parents and Mr. Franklin.
West Bay Neighbourhood officers assist with the event every year. The officers walk with the students, staff and parents, making sure that the participants are safe on the roads.
“It was great to be involved in this important event in the Tiffany’s pre-school calendar,” said Mr. Franklin. “As a new officer in the West Bay neighbourhood department, I’m really looking forward to working closely with all of the schools, pre-schools and community groups in the area. This is an important role for the NPD and it builds much greater understanding of what we, in the RCIPS, do and how we can work together to keep our communities safe.”
Anyone who wants to find out more about neighbourhood policing, requires crime prevention advice, needs to discuss any local issues with the officers, or who wants to learn more about partnering with the department for future events should call West Bay police station. NPD officers PC Sharon Baillie and PC Leslie Franklin can be reached at 649-3999 or 949-3999.
