Peterborough County OPP arrange self-defence lessons for girls to mark Police Week
Submitted By WM on Saturday, June 4, 2016
Players of the Peterborough Girls Hockey Association (PGHA) Midget A Ice Kats participated in a self-defence and personal safety program at Kawartha Combat on High St. with owner head coach Kevin Henry and instructor Ali Crowder on Tuesday May 17, 2016 in Peterborough, Ont.

MA Ice Kats and OPP

Peterborough County OPP launched self-defence and safety program for females as part of Police Week launched as a part of Police Week 2016. Players learned strategies to reduce vulnerability and increase confidence if someone finds themselves in a situation where a physical resistance response may be required to maintain personal safety.

The PGHA is a strong contributor in promoting a culture of female strength and ability within Peterborough County. The OPP is excited about offering the Midget A team this opportunity to work together in building confidence and a �warrior spirit� to be able to face challenges, both physical and mental, in any situation.

Police week started in Canada in 1970 as a way for police services to connect with community members. The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police has declared the theme of Police Week 2016 as Discover Policing for Safer Communities. Detachments participate in a wide range of events to engage the public, build awareness of the work that police services provide in communities and recognize the important partnership between community members and police.

Police Week 2016 runs between May 15-21.
