National Police Week

RCMP cap and Canada 150 logo

May 15–21, 2017

National Police Week began in 1970 as a way for police to connect with their communities and increase awareness about the services they provide. Community policing is at the heart of Police Week, as it's an opportunity for police and community members to get to know each other.

Community events

To highlight National Police Week, the RCMP is participating in a number of public events and activities across Canada. Many detachments across our nation will be celebrating National Police Week; they will be going out into their communities, participating in events, and highlighting the amazing work that they do.
