OPP Association Statement on Police Week 2021
This week is National Police Week across Canada and the USA. This year’s theme is Working Together to Keep our Communities Safe, which is a collaborative effort between police agencies and services, first responders, as well as social and community organizations.
The OPP Association is proud to represent the approximately 10,000 uniform and civilian members of the Ontario Provincial Police as their sole bargaining agent. We witness your dedication each and every day as public service providers who go above and beyond the call of duty. We want to take this opportunity to thank our members for your service, as well as all the supportive family members of our members who stand behind them every day. Our frontline members, running at minimum staffing levels, continue to work hours above and beyond to keep the public living in and visiting this province safe. Together we are stronger.
We are honoured to work with many community partners to achieve our community safety goals, and keep our members safe and healthy. Thank you to the many community partners who assist us regularly. There are too many partners to name everyone. During these uncertain times of the Covid-19 pandemic we thank our paramedic and fire department partners, and all of those partners in the medical community and front line workers who have been going above and beyond to ensure that our community remains safe. This week is also National Nursing Week. On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and members of the OPP Association we wish all nurses a Happy Nurses Week. Thank you to our nurses for your dedicated and tireless service.
Throughout the week we will be posting some celebrations of who we are and how we connect with our communities. We look forward to sharing our vision and success with our partners, and look forward to continued collaboration for community safety together throughout the province of Ontario.
