Your chance to watch an arrest go down, take in a court proceeding or take a tour of a courthouse will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2012.
Residents of the North Shore and beyond are invited to ‘Law Day – 2012 Open House’ at the North Vancouver Provincial Courthouse, 200 East 23rd Street, North Vancouver.
From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., a variety of presentations and simulations will be available regarding the many avenues of the criminal justice system, including:
- First Responders
- Criminal Court Process
- First Nations Court Process
- Family Court
- Youth Court
- Civil Court Process
- Community Stakeholders and Volunteer Agencies
The open house will have information, education and fun for the whole family, including police vehicles and equipment, K9 demonstrations, cell tours, displays and more.
The West Vancouver Police Department, along with the North Vancouver R.C.M.P. will be presenting a simulated crime scene and walk-through of the justice system from arrest to prosecution, and court proceedings. An ‘adult offence’ simulation will start at 10:00 a.m. and a ‘youth offence’ can be viewed at 1:00 p.m. (courthouse parking lot).
‘Law Day 2012 – Open House’ is organized by the North Shore Family Court and Youth Justice Committee that serves as a link between the community and the justice system.
