OPP Provincial Constable Andrew Wierzbicki of Pembroke Detachment (formerly of the OPP East Region ‘PLT’ Provincial Liaison Team) joins the 10-5 Podcast to discuss the Indigenous Youth and OPP Camp Niigan Mosewak, which means “Walking Forward” in Ojibway language. The camp has been in operation for 14 years and runs for one week in the the summer months in a number of regions of Ontario. The camp pairs Indigenous youth between the ages of 13-17 with OPP police officers, civilian employees, Auxiliary officers and interested community partners such as Police Foundations students for the purpose of building positive relationships between the police and the Indigenous community.  For more information on the camp and application forms click here.
