Up to 117 tables will be available where collectors will buy, sell and trade all sorts of law enforcement memorabilia. The most prominent items will be patches and badges; however, there will also be challenge coins, uniforms, police restraints, license plate, pins, and all sorts of other law enforcement items. Other items of historical significance will be displayed. SHOW CALENDAR Friday June 2, 2017 11AM - Registration and Set-up (Table holders and assistants only) Noon - Show opens to all collectors 7PM - Show Hall Closes Saturday June 3, 2017 9AM - Additional Set-up Time (Table Holders and assistants only) 10AM - Show opens to all collectors 2PM - Awards Presented 3PM - Show ends WHERE: Galt House Hotel & Convention Center 140 N. Fourth Street Louisville, KY SHOW INFORMATION GENERAL ADMISSION: General admission to the show is free!! There will be no early-bird passes for the early set-up periods on either Friday or Saturday. There will be no exceptions to this rule, as it undermines the security of the show hall. TABLE/DISPLAY SPACE INFORMATION: Approximately 117 tables are available for $50.00 each. The tables are eight feet long and 30 inches wide. Each table is clothed, skirted and provided with two chairs and a garbage can. Due to the open layout of the exhibit space, wall tables are extremely limited and cannot be guaranteed. The purchase of table space provides the holder with all-access admission passes for himself/herself and one assistant. These passes will provide entry into the show hall on both days of the show for early set-up. There are 93 tables in the main exhibit space with an option to expand into two attached and adjacent rooms connected to the show hall by double doors. All tables in the main hall will be filled before any auxiliary tables are sold. I will not accept payment for any table in the auxiliary show space without first notifying the purchaser. Electrical power is available for $75 with advance purchase. Easels are available for $5 rental fee per easel with advance purchase. Wireless internet access is $10 per day. All of these add-ons are subject to an additional 28% service charge/tax fee. TABLE ORDERING INFORMATION: Table reservations for the 2017 Mideast Regional Police Collectors Show are now being accepted. Reservations can be made by contacting the show host, Jim Clark, via email at jmclark0478@gmail.com. Tables can also be ordered and paid for online using the link below. For those without email access, you can make reservations via phone by calling (502) 931-5805 between the hours of 11AM and 9PM Eastern Standard Time. Reservations can be made without payment; however, payment must be received within two weeks of the reservation date or the reservation will be voided. It is expected that the show will sell out, so make reservations early (especially if you have special requests). Requests can be made for wall space, electrical access, to be placed near other specific collectors, etc. The show host will make every effort possible to fulfill these requests, but tables must be ordered with the understanding that the requests of all collectors may not be fulfilled. Any cancellation of table space must be made prior to May 15, 2017, for a refund to be issued. All table holders who do not order and pay for tables online must send in a registration form with their payment. Acceptable forms of mail-in payments are personal check, cashier's check, and money orders. You can obtain a printer-friendly registration form

  24. TIMMINS - Timmins Police Service stepped up its formality just a bit during the regular monthly meeting of the police services board this week. “We have been in contact with the Government of Canada and the Canadian Heraldic Authority to have a coat-of-arms designed for the Timmins Police Service,” Police Chief John Gauthier said at the meeting on Thursday. Gauthier said the idea for a formal coat-of-arms originated with retired police chief Richard Laperrière several years ago, and even though the chief retired five years ago, the work continued. “With much determination and assistance from Kate Cantin, our corporate communications coordinator, we are happy to reveal the finished product here this afternoon,” said Gauthier. Interim communications coordinator Marc Depatie described the new coat of arms as a “striking piece of artwork” and said it was the result of several years of work. He said the herald depicts Northern Ontario wildlife as symbolized through the two owls, which also reflects the “sage and wisdom-oriented approach to policing.” The owls are also wearing British style “bobby” police hats which were part of the police regalia in 1912, the year the Timmins Police Service was incorporated under the leadership of Chief James P. Ryan. The new herald was created by armorial artist Eva Pilar-Cass, of Sault Ste. Marie, who is well known for creating such symbols. The top of the herald features a porcupine, in reference to the Porcupine Camp mining district. The porcupine is shown holding an eagle feather, which is representative of the strong relationship that exists with the Aboriginal population, said Depatie. The same time as the coat-of-arms was unveiled, a new spruced-up version of the Timmins Police badge was revealed. Similar to the city’s official symbol, it features a crossed prospector’s hammer and miner’s sledge hammer with a glittering gold nugget, surrounded by a wreath of golden maple leaves. It is topped by a proper royal crown. “This piece of artwork is going to be standard by which we recognize our past but embrace the future,” Depatie said. No decision has been made as yet where the new coat of arms will be featured in the Timmins Police building, although it is likely to replace the large existing police emblem that is now featured in the atrium of the public lobby. There is also the possibility the symbol will be transferred to a new flag for the police building and for police related ceremonial events. Chief Gauthier said he was pleased with the new herald saying it was indeed a unique piece of artwork. Timmins mayor and police board chairman Steve Black was also pleased with the final product. “It has been a long process, but obviously I think they’ve done a great job capturing the history of not just the region but the Timmins Police as well,” said Black, who offered congratulations to the artist and the senior officers for their support.
