A group of people got to get a little more comfortable around police, thanks to a special introduction event.

In an outdoor, socially distant setting, the Kamloops RCMP recently welcomed ‘People in Motion’ clients and support workers to the North Shore Community Detachment to help familiarize them with police.

Small groups of attendees were able to meet some of the city’s frontline officers, watch demonstrations, and check out some of their cool tools, to help them connect with police and feel more comfortable turning to them for help. Along with meeting Police Service Dog ‘Kody’, participants got to check out police vehicles and vests during the May 27, 2021 interaction.

For Alison Yamelst, seeing the RCMP truck and learning about how the pandemic has impacted police was her favourite part of the session.
