RCMP display will kick off Police Week

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have a huge event planned for this Sunday to help kick off National Police Week.

A massive display, including some impressive RCMP vehicles, will be the focal point of celebrations in the Cowichan Place field north of Vancouver Island University from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Vehicles on display will include the TAV (Tactical Armoured Vehicle), the Mobile Command Post, a Tactical Communications Vehicle, a rigid-hull inflatable boat, and some police cars.

RCMP members will also be on hand in a variety of uniforms, including duty duds, bike patrol garb, and the famous Red Serge.

They will be joined by Community Policing with information about RCMP community programs and opportunities to volunteer and help out.

A representative from the 2014 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team will be at the event to provide details about the ride, and the RCMP will have a full display with posters, recruiting information and banners depicting career options within the police force.

The RCMP haven’t forgotten that Sunday happens to be Mother’s Day as well.

"Bring the kids, bring the moms," media relations officer Cpl. Jon Stuart said. "There will be stickers, and tattoos, and lots to do. We are hoping to have a special visitor drop by during the day. There will also be a food vendor on site for you to buy lunch and refreshments if you wish."
