The Kids 'N' Kops program was developed for children ages 9-12 who are on the waiting list for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Kids 'N' Kops is based on a partnership between the Bridgewater Police Service and the South Shore Big Brothers/Big Sisters. The week is comprised of a mini police academy with recreational component. The morning includes activities with police officers and police partners such as crime scene investigations, K-9 scenarios, fire safety demonstrations and fingerprinting. The afternoon includes physical activities such as swimming, sports and beach fun. The Kids 'N' Kops program will be supervised by volunteers and staff of the Bridgewater Police Service and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
The Kids 'N' Kops Program took place at the Bridgewater Police Station, August 20th to August 24th, 2007.
For more information on how you can become involved or sponsor an event for next year, please contact Sgt. John Collyer or Dale Saulnier at 543-2464.
The children from the Kids 'N' Kops program spent Tuesday morning with Miss Reba, a specially trained dog. Aux. Cst. Creig Veinot, owner and trainer of Miss Reba, explained to the children how these special dogs are able to find missing people, search for drugs and articles and track individuals who may be trying to hide from the police. Miss Reba put on an excellent show as she showed the Kids 'N' Kops kids how she does her job.
The kids learn how to lift fingerprints from objects.
The kids record an ad during their tour of CKBW studios. Thanks Jonathan!
