On Friday October 21st, 2016, members of the Regina Police Service will be going back in time to a practice of “walking the beat” in North Central Regina for Community Cop Day.

The walk is a way for the Regina Police Service to show it is committed to the safety of this neighbourhood, responsive to the concerns of the residents, and show support for people and organizations that work hard to improve the neighbourhood, a press release stated.

It also noted that 30 years ago, a “beat cop” was a common sight in Regina., but changing times, combined with different responsibilities and demands for police resources, has meant the opportunities for police officers to walk the beat in local neighbourhoods are limited. For one day at least, we are excited to go back in time and walk the local beat.

The beat walk begins at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21st, 2016, when uniformed members will leave the Albert Scott Community Centre (1264 Athol Street) and walk the streets for the evening, interacting with local business people, residents, and community association members.
