Your Police Services: Helping Build Safer Communities.
On Friday, May 13th, and Saturday, May 14th, the LaSalle Police Service will be kicking off Police Week at Zehrs LaSalle located at 5890 Malden Road, LaSalle. Come on out and meet our officers and check out our vehicles, classic vehicles, and displays.
May 15th -21st, 2022 is a seven-day public awareness campaign that encourages new connections between police and the communities they serve.
This campaign represents an opportunity to emphasize how police officers are both members of the community they live in and members of the police community they work in. This year, we recognize the connection between the police and Canadians, and the importance of understanding one another.
True understanding means eliminating assumptions and attitudes and making way for open and constructive conversations balanced with active listening. Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued, allowing all parties to derive strength from the relationship. This year, we celebrate our efforts to be “connected to our communities”.
“I am proud to be part of this great team called the LaSalle Police Service for it is our care and service to each other that bolsters our ability to resolve conflict and fulfill our mission in service to all who live, work and play in the Town of LaSalle. As we continue to fulfill our noble calling in service to our community, may we be reminded of the words of Charles Dickens “Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts”, said Chief Duncan Davies.
Public safety involves a collaborative effort within police agencies, between police services, and between the police and the communities they serve. As first responders, police officers are often the gateway to many community supports. This week, the LaSalle Police Service renews its oath to serve and protect the citizens in our region and we continue to strive to align our services to meet their needs and expectations.
