National Police week

National Police week began in 1970 as a way for police to connect with their communities and increase awareness about services they provide. Community policing is at the heart of police week, as it’s an opportunity for police and community members to get know each other.   

Here at Higgins Insurance, we have started a new education series on some professionals who work in different fields. We will be highlighting them throughout this year and they will range from correctional officers, social workers, doctors, 911 operators, police, nurses, education support staff, arts, housekeepers, etc. If you would like to be featured, please let us know by email.


Our goal is to inspire our youth so they can learn more about different professions, as well as to showcase the amazing people that perform those jobs in the Maritimes. 

Here is our interview with Mary Henderson of the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force.
