Officers from Port Alberni RCMP’s Indigenous Police Section worked closely with the Eighth Avenue Learning Centre to organize a camp with the hopes of both building a positive relationship with youth, and exposing them into the day to day of world of policing.

Throughout the camp, youth had presentations from Forensic Identification Investigators, Police Dog Services, North Island Operations Communications Centre and the Emergency Response Team. The youth then got to put their newly acquired skills to the test by responding to their own calls for service.

The last two years have made it difficult to continue these experiences, but officers in our Indigenous Policing worked hard and fast to ensure this years experience could happen, stated Constable Richard Johns, these are the experiences that youth and our officers will remember for years.

Port Alberni RCMP would like to thank our community partners at Port Alberni Fire Department, BC Ambulance, and especially the Eighth Avenue Learning Centre.
