22 Division will gather next week to honour Sergeants Stan Baj, Tim Burrows and Russ Clark and Police Constable Greg Vanderhart who retired earlier this year.

Collectively they have over 137 years of policing experience.

These officers all had amazing careers and their retirement is well deserved.

We wish them a long healthy and happy retirement.

Whether a teacher or police officer; whether a Principal or a Chief; whether at work or volunteering their time; both professions are about improving communities and strengthening people to reach their potential in life.

The Saint John Paul Catholic Secondary School Breakfast Club received a special visit today! Vice-Principal (and long-time friend of Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair) Paul Adams has recently announced his retirement after a fulfilling career as a teacher and Administrator.
The Chief showed up at the school this morning to see his old friend again and wish him well. Oddly enough, Paul Adams was sitting with Chief Blair when he received the phone from Metropolitan Toronto Police offering him a position.
Mr. Adams appreciated the support, and the students were pleasantly surprised to see Chief Blair. One of the students has just been hired for the Y.I.P.I. Program!

Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service

Sunday, September 28, 2014
Ottawa, Ontario

On September 24, 1998 the Government of Canada officially proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year as Police and Peace Officers´ National Memorial Day. This National Memorial Day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officers, which made the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep our communities safe.

Unfortunately, our comrades are falling at an alarming rate; six to eight officers a year for the last twenty-three years. In 1978 the first Memorial honoured 14 officers. In 2014 the names of over 840 members are engraved on the Honour Roll along the perimeter wall on Parliament Hill, overlooking the Ottawa River and the Supreme Court of Canada. The glass panels provide a lasting tribute to our heroes, and ensure that future generations are reminded of the supreme sacrifices of our fallen members.

Graffiti is always a topic at our community meetings and the police are always working with the city, BIA's and residents about combatting the issue. Many different approaches come and go. Each station has a graffiti budget...And we are all ears if someone wants to tell us about someone they know does a mess like they did to Hitch. I am at a meeting soon where the graffiti initiatives and budget is on the table. keep you posted.

The annual Run to Remember is a three-day relay run, from the Ontario Police Memorial at Queen´s Park to the Canadian Police Memorial on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Participants met at Queen´s Park before setting off on a 460-km run through the various communities between Toronto and Ottawa, helping to raise awareness of the memorial and the funds needed to ensure the legacy of fallen officers and the education of their children. Here are some of our Officers who just completed the first leg of the day, having arrived in Brighton! From left: Special Events PC Lesa Harvey, 53 Divisions PC Kate Newell, PC Diana Croll and Inspector Suzanne Walsh! Way to go!
