Crime Prevention association hosting workshops


ELMSDALE: A workshop designed to give residents a better idea of the types of frauds and scams people try to use to take advantage of the uninformed is being scheduled for next week.

The East Hants Crime Prevention Association (EHCPA) is hosting the event on June 19 at the Elmsdale Fire Hall beginning at 7 p.m. The workshop provides a great opportunity to learn all kinds of things you didn’t know.

In a release about the workshop, EHCPA says it’s amazing what we take for granted when we turn on our computers and start online shopping, cruising the internet or opening emails and also who may be on the other end of our telephones when we answer them.

The workshop is open to everyone in the community (free of charge) so everyone is encouraged to come out and attend.

please spread the word, plan to attend and bring your family members, neighbours, co-workers, etc.

Also, the EHCPA is working in partnership with Safe Choice Safety Service to offer the Home Alone Program locally.

The program is designed to provide youth aged 9-12 years or grades 4-6 with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when learning to stay home alone.

It will be held on June 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nine Mile River Community Center, located at 7160 Hwy. 14 in Nine Mile River. The cost is $40 per participant. Space is limited but they are taking names for a waiting list (please send EHCPA a message on their Facebook page and your name can be added to the list).
