First Kids n Kops camp builds relationships

YOUNG PEOPLE learn about role of RCMP officers and build relationships with officers at week-long camp

THE FIRST Kids n Kops Camp participants show off their graduation day certificates at the end of the week-long event.

RCMP OFFICERS and others involved in the Kids N Kops camp hope relationships built during the week will provide a community and personal benefit.

Young people learned about what RCMP officers do, from solving a crime at Ferry Island, doing a physical abilities requirement evaluation, self-defence training, firearms safety and even rescuing a person from the water with Terrace Search and Rescue and putting out fires with the Terrace Fire Department.

There was also the water gun stand off at Lakelse Lake.

This was all followed by a celebration barbeque where everyone received a participation certificate and a gift from the Terrace RCMP.

The goal of this camp was to build positive relationships with youth and show them what police officers do. A police officer’s number one responsibility is to protect and preserve life. That was a common topic of discussion in all that we did throughout the week, says Cst Angela Rabut, media relations / community policing officer Terrace RCMP.
