Festive RIDE Kickoff
The Festive RIDE Kickoff is set for Tuesday, November 23rd at 11:00 here at the Timmins Police station.
Santa (Mickey Auger) is recovering from surgery so we will have to go on without him this year.
TPS Traffic Section will have a clean TPS Durango and the TPS sleds readily available for the photo op. OPP Community Policing officer, Const. Michelle Simard, will be on hand with an officer or two for the photo op. Based on a conversation earlier this morning, she agrees to notify the local MADD chapter about this event so that they will be on hand as well.
Auxiliary officers, both OPP and TPS, are absolutely welcome to attend as well. Insp. Blanchette and Platoon 1 officers will be on hand for the photo op and to provide the media with a quote or two about the importance of planning for a safe ride home during the festive season.
Future police officers with the Police Foundations program at Northern College are also welcome to attend to show their commitment to public safety.
