Greater Sudbury Police Service is joining forces with Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Greater Sudbury Fire Services, the Ministry of Natural Resources, and Citizens on Patrol Volunteers (COPS) for the second annual Operation Pumpkin Patrol.
The event kicks off Oct. 31 at 60 p.m. at the Lionel E. Lalonde Centre. Members of the Greater Sudbury Police Service, including auxiliary constables and police mascot Insp. Murphy Mooseau, as well as EMS, Fire Services and the MNR, will be working together to patrol the streets, helping to ensure a safer environment for children and their parents.
From the Lionel E. Lalonde Centre, Operation Pumpkin Patrol will work its way to the Edgar Leclair Centre for the Kids Safe Halloween event. En route, the Patrol will pass through neighbourhoods, handing out candy and stickers to trick-or-treaters.
At the Kids Safe Halloween event, Operation Pumpkin Patrol will meet and greet the kids, answer questions, pose for photos and hand out treats. There will also be a haunted house.
The Patrol will leave the Edgar Leclair Centre around 7:30 p.m. and will proceed down St-Agnes Street, making its way back to the Lionel E. Lalonde Centre, concluding at 8:30 p.m.
Donations for this event have been provided by Rainbow District Animal Control and Shelter Services, Chartrand’s Independent Grocer (Chelmsford) and the Azilda Community Action Network.
