CORNWALL, ON, Nov. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Students were given a chance to see
first-hand the work of the Cornwall Regional Task Force (CRTF) while
participating in this year's Bring Your Kid to Work Day initiative.
On Wednesday, November 6th, 2013, fourteen (14) Grade 9 students from the Cornwall and surrounding
area high schools spent the day at the Cornwall RCMP Detachment with
members of the CRTF. Students were given a tour of the office, had the
opportunity to interact with members of the CRTF and partner agency
members. The students got an opportunity to try their junior policing
skills in realistic scenarios that police might encounter in their
day-to-day work. Basic instruction and practical experience in arrest
techniques and law were also provided to the students.
The day was a resounding success with all participants thoroughly
enjoying their "inside" peek of the work performed by the CRTF. "All
this was an incredible and unforgettable experience," said Isabella
Caparelli, one of the students who attended.
