The North Bay Police Service joins police services across the province to celebrate Police Week from May 15th to May 21st, 2016. This year’s theme is Discover Policing for Safer Communities.

“Police Week is an occasion for the North Bay Police Service to highlight the roles of our sworn and civilian members who work together, with pride and professionalism, to keep the people of North Bay and Callander safe,” said Chief Shawn Devine, North Bay Police Service. “We encourage the public to discover policing and the variety of positions our members hold, whether they are answering 911 calls, keeping our neighbourhoods, our bike paths and our roads safe, collecting evidence from crime scenes, or applying high health and safety standards to the maintenance of our building.”
