Police Day 2017

Saturday, May 13
9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Mic Mac Mall
2nd level near the Bay and the parking lot by Old Navy

Curious about policing? Have you ever wondered what’s on a police officer’s duty belt? Or if Halifax has an Emergency Response Team? And just how accurate are TV crime shows? 

Find out the answers to these questions and many more at our free Police Day Showcase. The event is a chance for us to de-mystify policing for the citizens we serve and it’s also our way to kick-off National Police Week, which runs May 14-20.

The showcase features several specialized police units and will include displays, demonstrations and activities. Police officers will be available to answer questions from the public, and a number of police vehicles will be on site - giving the you a rare chance to jump into the driver's seat of a police cruiser. There will also be a FREE Shred-Instead event, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., lower parking lot, Mic Mac Mall. Shredding and recycling personal documents is an excellent way to help protect yourself from identity theft. Learn more.
