Today, the Toronto Police Service announced that, as a result of a settlement with the Ontario Human Rights Commission, a new procedure has been created relating to the Memorial Wall honouring fallen officers.
Since the settlement was signed in April 2017, the Service, in consultation with the Commission, has been working to finalize a procedure by which any member, including those who have lost their lives because of mental health injuries, may be eligible for recognition on the Memorial Wall.
The new procedure and online application form were published today on the Service’s website and can be seen here.
The process creates an opportunity for the Service to respectfully recognize those who have died, regardless of cause of death, by appropriately commemorating those who, through their actions, demonstrated the noble qualities of policing and inspired those who continue to serve.
