Arnott thanks police officers for service to local communities

QUEEN'S PARK - Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott rose in the Ontario Legislature on May 9 to thank local police officers for their service and commitment to their communities.

“Today as we welcome the members of the Ontario Provincial Police Association to Queen’s Park, it seems appropriate that we express our sincere thanks to all in Ontario’s police services who are called to respond to all manner of emergencies, who keep our communities safe, and who enforce our laws,” Arnott said.

Arnott recognized the outstanding work of the OPP in Wellington County. “The county of Wellington is fortunate to have the OPP as our police service,” Arnott said. “In fact, we were one of the first counties in Ontario to contract with the OPP, and the arrangement has been exemplary over the years.

“Under the leadership of Detachment Commander Scott Lawson, we have launched the Integrated Mobile Police and Crisis Team, or IMPACT, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association, to address community mental health needs,” he continued.

He also highlighted the dedicated work of the Halton Regional Police. “In Halton region, under the leadership of Chief Stephen Tanner, we are also fortunate to have our regional police service,” Arnott told MPPs. “Their collaborative professionalism is eloquently summarized this way: ‘One vision, one mission, one team.’

“Working with our school boards and reaching out to grade school students, the Halton police service has created a program called Building Respect, Attitudes and Values with Others, or B.R.A.V.O,” he continued.

 Arnott added that the efforts of our local police have helped make Wellington-Halton Hills a safe and welcoming place to live.

 Arnott also met with representatives from the Ontario Provincial Police Association that afternoon in his Queen’s Park office, in between the morning and afternoon sittings of the Legislature, and following a weekly three hour caucus meeting.
