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.
