St. David School Celebrates Police Week with Local Greater Sudbury Police Officers

St. David Grade 2 student Autumn Scott and Sgt. Carl Hoeg share breakfast at St. David Catholic Elementary School.

May 31, 2013 - This year National Police Week is celebrated across Canada from May 12-18. National Police Week allows police services from across Canada to answer the public's questions and develop proactive relationships. It allows the public an opportunity to "get to know" their local police officers.
The Greater Sudbury Police planned many special community activities for this week and one of them was attending St. David Catholic School to have breakfast with the students. The police officers were able to take the time to answer student questions, discuss summer safety tips and eat a healthy, delicious breakfast together.

"The officers enjoyed themselves tremendously . St David students gave them a very warm reception. It is important for the children to see the police officers in a different light than what is portrayed on TV or portrayed by others as being reactive. Our motto is "Our Community - Our Commitment" and we are part of this community. We live in this community and these are our children and we are committed", stated special Constable Denise Fraser.

"This is a great way to start our day. We had a good breakfast and we learned how to make good decisions when we get to high school", stated grade a 8 student when speaking of her breakfast with Constable Grant Dokis.

Our community is a better, safer place because of these police officers. St. David School was proud to welcome them into their school community and is grateful for all they do to support Sudbury in being a great city to live in.

St. David School would like to thank: Special Constable Denise Fraser, Special Constable Cheryl Kenelly, Staff Sergeant Robin Tiplady, Constable Bert Lepalme, Constable Grant Dokis, Sergeant Carl Hoeg, A. Sergeant Randy Hosken, Constable Joann Russell, Constable Angela Sirkka, and Anna Barsanti for all they do to make a difference in our community!
