Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a police officer? The Chatham-Kent Police Service gives children aged 12 & 13 the opportunity to find out!
Cop Camp will motivate young people to be outstanding citizens through law enforcement education. Targeting students before high school, this program is a police academy for young people.
