Although you may not be able to arrest your mom for sending you to bed early or charge your teacher for giving you too much homework, there are still a few advantages to being Chief of Police, even if it’s just for one day.

For one, you get to look super sharp in a snappy uniform that has tassels and everything, and two, you get to hone your writing skills. Maybe if this policing thing doesn’t work out you could even consider a career as a writer.

The Annual Police Chief for a Day essay contest is now open and students entering Grade 5 this fall are invited to enter the essay contest to become Durham Regional Police Service’s Chief for a Day.

The theme of the 500-word essay contest is “What would you do if you were the Chief of Police for a day?”

The winner will serve as Chief for one day in October 2021.

All submissions must include the name of the student submitting the essay, the name and city of school attended and the school board the student attends.

Essays are due Wednesday September 15th and are to be submitted via email to [email protected]
For more information, please contact Cst. Stefanie Puckrin at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1745.
