Pink Shirt Day
Cornwall Community Police Service has been an annual supporter of Pink Shirt Day, hosted locally by the Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG. On February 22, 2017, members of the Cornwall Community Police Service wore their pink with pride to raise awareness for the national Pink Shirt Day anti-bullying campaign.
The Cornwall Community Police Service in association with the Eastern Ontario Training Board hosted the 13th annual Youth Symposium from February 13th to February 16th, 2017.Students in grade 7 to grade 12 were invited to listen to motivational speaker Mark Black who attended various schools within Cornwall delivered his powerful message, "don't live every day like it's your last day, just be ALIVE every day."
Mark Black is The Guy Who Get's Teens Thinking™ . A Heart & Double-Lung Transplant Recipient, 4-Time Marathon Runner, and best-selling author of "Live Life from the Heart", Mark has been working with teens for over a decade. As a former teacher, Mark understands teens in a unique way, having worked with them in a variety of settings. Unlike many adults, Mark has a special love for teens and a firm belief that most teens are engaged, productive, citizens. It is probably this love that teens connect with when Mark speaks to them.
Crime Prevention Week

Communication between youth and police is making a difference in our community. It can be measured by the connection local youth have with our officers.
May 16th - 20th, 2016 has been designated as Police Week in Ontario. This year’s theme, Discover Policing, invites members of all our communities to discover the many ways their police services are serving their communities. It also encourages Ontarians from all walks of life to consider a rewarding and fulfilling career in law enforcement both as sworn and civilian members of police organizations.
As part of our commitment to the community the Cornwall Community Police Service participated in the following events:
May 16th – 20th, 2016 during Police Week members of the Cornwall Community Police Service attended local schools to have students take part in a police obstacle course.
