YouthLink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre
September 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
YouthLink is home to the Calgary Police Museum, a site filled with Calgary Police stories, exhibits, and artifacts dating back to the late 1880s.
We believe that if youth are educated with the facts and armed with the relevant information, they have a better chance of making good decisions in the face of peer pressure and other factors. We also know that one bad decision can lead them down a path to either being a victim of crime or a perpetrator of crime. Our goal is that the information they learn while visiting and learning in our immersive exhibits will keep them safe for life.
We will be featuring ‘behind the scenes’ talks and activities relating to the police museum and the Calgary Police Service. A display of never-seen-before artifacts, ‘Tales from the Crypt’ – creepy stories from our archives.
All areas of the museum will showcase a variety of units of the Calgary Police Service – there will be uniformed officers on-site giving presentations and facilitating unique activities and games.
The total building capacity is 300. Each classroom can hold about 60 people.
