On Friday October 21st, 2016, a number of members of the Regina Police Service will be walking the beat in North Central Regina. Calling it “Community Cop Day”, the Regina Police Service wants to show it is committed to the safety of this neighbourhood and responsive to the concerns of the residents. Many individuals and organizations in North Central Regina work hard to improve their neighbourhood, and we are proud to support them and their efforts.
Thirty years ago, a “beat cop” was a common sight in Regina. Visible and approachable, these police officers provided a noticeable presence and opportunity for community members to discuss their concerns. Changing times, combined with different responsibilities and demands for police resources, has meant the opportunities now for police officers to walk the beat in local neighbourhoods are limited. For one day at least, we are excited to go back in time and walk the local beat.
At 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21st, 2016, our uniformed members will leave the Albert Scott Community Centre (1264 Athol Street) and walk the streets for the evening, interacting with local business people, residents, and community association members. Feel free to say hello and meet the officers.
