Humans of CPS
One of the strategic objectives of the Cornwall Police Service (CPS) is to build trust with the members of the communities that we serve. Throughout 2022, we will be implementing listening tables, meetings, and growing our partnerships as a way to enhance our relationship and build trust with those whom we serve. We also want to introduce the community to the members of the CPS who serve the many residents and visitors of Cornwall, as a way of allowing the community to get to know some of our people, their backgrounds, and why they have chosen a career with the Cornwall Police Service.
Throughout 2022, we will be featuring these "Humans of CPS" on this section of our website. Please continue to check back as we add more faces to this compilation.
