Quote from OPP Association President John Cerasuolo
Our OPP Association members thank the Government of Ontario for increased funding for the OPP led Organized Crime Towing and Auto Theft Team, community safety grants targeting auto theft, and the creation of a new Major Auto Theft Prosecution Response Team. Our police officers and communicators working on the front lines are dealing with auto theft and organized crime challenges more than ever before. Thank you to our front line members, who are dealing with often dangerous situations amid staffing shortages, our specialized team members and our law enforcement partners for their ongoing commitment to public safety.
