June 23, 2023

We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who was able to participate in the 1stAnnual 911 Swing for the Cause Charity Golf Tournament.

We are thrilled to share that we raised $6100 for the Renfrew and District Food Bank!

We could not have done this without our amazing sponsors, volunteers, and attendees. The support we received from the community and surrounding detachments was beyond heart warming.

Congratulations to our winning team: Brent Boyce, Bobby Hawn, Chris Kettyle, and Ryan Kealey, who scored a cool 61!

The photo was taken at Sky Harbour International airport in Phoenix Arizona on the June 26, 2019. D/Cst. Armit and D/Cst. Stemoski attended Phoenix in the OPP Pilatus in relation to the extradition of a prisoner who had been convicted of sexual assault in Superior Court and while awaiting sentencing, absconded into the US. Extradition proceedings were commenced with Crown Law in Toronto with assistance from the International Assistance Group in Ottawa, the Office of International Affairs in the US and the US Marshal Service who located and arrested the accused for us in Arizona. An excellent example of cooperation amongst our Justice Partners and the lengths at which the OPP will go to get to bring accused persons to Justice. The accused was successfully returned to Canada on the June 27, 2019 and is in custody awaiting sentence. A special thanks to OPP Aviation Service for their assistance and safe travel completed by pilots Wade Arnold and Marcus Himanen.
