Looking for something fun for the whole family to do? Look no further than the Lanark County OPP Detachment in Perth.

Inspector Derek Needham and officers from the Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wish to invite the community to visit the Lanark County Detachment (75 Dufferin Street, Perth) as part of Police Week on Saturday, May 11, 2019 between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.

Parents and children can tour the detachment, speak with officers, sit in a cruiser, view the motorcycle, Mobile Command Unit, and get fingerprinting done through the Masonic Child Identification Program (CHIP). 

The CHIP program allow parents the opportunity to create a kit of identifying materials for their child, free of charge. The kit contains a fingerprint card, a physical description, a video, computer disk, or DVD of the child, a dental imprint and a DNA sample. The purpose of the kit is to provide critical information to the public and to law enforcement in the event that a child goes missing. 

The Masonic Child ID Program operates with strict confidentiality, with all data on portable computers being removed from systems immediately after the DVD data has been written. If a DVD or video is lost by a parent or guardian, they can simply have another created free of charge by attending another Masonic Child ID event.

Children can bring their bicycles and helmets to test their skills in a directional skills course. Pamphlets and information will also be available on various topics for parents and children.

Victim Services of Lanark County will also be on hand with a charity barbeque.

Come help us celebrate Police Week and learn about what your officers do in our community!
