SOAP: Barrie police connect with youth

Barrie police continue to make a connection with local youth through the annual Summer Outreach Awareness Program (SOAP), which kicked off July 5.
Into its third year now, SOAP connects police and youth through some fun, interactive fun which includes safety tips on a range of issues shared by officers. The program includes, in most locations, bike-rodeo courses to illustrate the importance of wearing helmets while cycling, and other safe-riding tips.
The events also allow residents the opportunity to converse with officers about neighbourhood concerns, etc. Police are partnering with the Simcoe County District Health Unit and Domino’s Pizza to present the program.
