Four RCMP members, four Enforcement Services officers and about six firefighers stopped by to picnic with approximately 20 youth.
“This is cool!”, remarked one of the skateboarders as he enjoyed pizza and pop provided by the City of Spruce Grove’s Safe City initiative, as part of the program’s Crime Prevention mandate.
“Sharing some food and talking together lets us get to know the youth. Strong, positive relationships make Emergency Services more approachable if youth need help”, states Cpl. Colette Zazulak of the Spruce Grove/Stony Plain RCMP.
