(BIG TROUT LAKE, ON) โ€“ย Recently, members from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Deployment Program spent time making connections with local youth in the communities of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (Big Trout Lake) and Wapekeka, playing floor hockey, sitting in the police cruiser.

Cst. DOBBIN spoke on behalf of herself and Cst. BROWN & Cst. BAILEY, who was invited to a ball hockey game by one of the younger teens in the community.

Since then, they have played hockey or soccer every night from 6:30-9:30pm in the community gym. Theyhave met many of the youth in the Community, all of which have shown then a new side of policing.

These youth are full of life and cherish the time OPP spend with them. OPP truly believe they can help them reach goals they never thought was possible.ย The youth are so open and honest once you prove and show them you care.

Many of them have expressed their interests in becoming a police officer.ย Even though OPP only spent a short time in the communities, their experiences were only positive.

OPP hope to make it back to further our community relationships between the youth and police.
