School is back in session and while some students are returning the the familiar halls and classrooms this week, others are in a completely new country.
The West Shore RCMP Community Policing Unit is in full swing again and making a point to connect with youth in the community.
On Sept. 5, Const. Don McIntosh and Const. Nancy Saggar of the West Shore RCMP delivered a presentation to international masters students at Royal Roads University.
The presentation was aimed at helping new students transition to studying abroad and learn Canadian laws.
McIntosh, who is also the cannabis liaison officer with the West Shore RCMP, said it is a “pleasure” to meet with students.
“We want them to have a smooth transition and to know we are available should they need us,” McIntosh said. “Many of the students arrived only days ago, and as police we are honoured to be amongst the first to welcome them to their new home.”
