On behalf of the OPPA Board of Directors, our staff and our membership, it is a pleasure to recognize the dedication and professionalism of our OPPA communicator members and all of our first responder communicators across North America during Public Safety Communicator Appreciation Week April 10th – 17th.  This year, in 2022, is extra special as we celebrate 20yrs of our civilian members being a part of the OPP Association.

The staff working in our OPP Provincial Communications Centres are a lifeline for our members and the communities throughout Ontario 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,  365 days per year. They often sacrifice family time and their personal lives to be dedicated to protecting the safety of the citizens of province of Ontario and our police officers.  They are often the unsung heroes in saving lives.  The work our Communicators do is world class, and we are proud to have them as members of the OPP Association.

We know that many of our police officers have special random acts of kindness in appreciation of our Communicators planned this week. Please know that your work is valued and critical each and every day. Thank you for all you do.
