The theme of Police Week is Developing Community Partnerships and earlier this week the activities began with a bang.... and several crashes.

At Generations Park the Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Police Department partnered up and held an afternoon of racing and lacrosse.

The popular Power Wheels track was set up and youngsters got a chance to race around the basketball court.

Some chose to shot hoops and there were almost a few collisions between the two.

Several of the officers played lacrosse with the kids in the Travis Solomon Memorial lacrosse box. Many of the participants were from the Akwesasne Storm and Akwesasne Attack programs and their lacrosse skills were on display.

After all the running around and blowing past the police officers in lacrosse everyone was treated to hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drink. AMPS Chief/Chef Jerry Swamp manned the grill.

National Police Week runs this week and the aim is to educate the public on its Police service while strengthening ties with that same community.
