Hey, kids, question the cops

Constables Todd Trehan and Scott Renders of the CKPS traffic unit showed 2019 Camp Siren attendees the tools of the trade when it comes to traffic enforcement, including the motorcycles used by officers on patrol. Due to COVID, there will be no Camp Sirens this year, but police want to field questions from local kids.

Due to COVID restrictions, the Chatham-Kent Police Service has cancelled Camp Sirens this year. But they have a curious alternative.

Camp Sirens gives young people the opportunity to learn more about the first responders who protect their community, police officials say.

This summer, the service is introducing Curious Kids Question Cops.

Police officers are usually the ones asking all the questions, so now they want to reverse the roles. If your child has a police-related question, police officials ask that you record them asking the question and officers will do their best to answer them.

Parents are asked to ensure questions are appropriate and respectful.

Video submissions should be no longer than 20 seconds.

Questions may be e-mailed to Const. Renee Cowell at ckpsmedia@gmail.com until July 17.

Questions and replies will be posted on CKPS social media platforms.
