Cobourg Police Service Celebrates Police Week 2024

In Upcoming Events

The Cobourg Police Service is proud to announce our participation in Police Week in Ontario from May 12 to 18, 2024.

Throughout the week, the Cobourg Police Service will host various activities and events to foster community relationships and showcase the diverse aspects of policing. The week provides an opportunity to celebrate the important role our police officers and personnel play in community safety and our vital relationships and partnerships with communities.

We invite the citizens of Cobourg and local business owners to join us in celebrating Police Week. Together, we can keep Ontario safe.

Since 1970, Police Week has taken place in May to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is internationally recognized on May 15. Here in Cobourg, this date holds a special place as the day to reflect and remember Constable Chris Garrett #221, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on May 15, 2004, while protecting the citizens of the Town of Cobourg, Ontario.

The annual Police Week in Ontario is sponsored by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General. It is part of the National Police Week led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.
