Much to Linda’s surprise, the day before our new police vehicle design arrived, and under the Canadian flag is the name Rose Fortune. The Annapolis Royal Police Service is very proud of our history and where we began as a police service. Rose, being not just the first female police officer in Canada, but also the first African Canadian to be trusted as a police officer in her time patrolling the waterfront of Annapolis Royal. Having Rose remembered on our police vehicle not only shows our proud heritage and our history, but it also brings her with us as part of our future journey as a police service.
