Owen Sound Police Service Celebrates Police Week

Police Week in Ontario runs from May 12 to 18 and Owen Sound Police Service is proud to join with other police forces across the province to kick off the annual event.

This week, we will be celebrating the work that front-line police officers, 9-1-1 communicators, and police professionals do to keep Ontarians safe and healthy.

The theme for the week is Join Policing: Keep Ontario Safe and highlights the important role police members play in community safety, and how members of the community can take an active role in keeping Ontario safe by joining this rewarding profession.

“Police Week presents us with an opportunity to focus on the great work our officers and police professionals do every day. It also coincides with the Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is recognized internationally on May 15,” said Police Chief Craig Ambrose. “Observed since 1970, Police Week brings Ontario police services and communities together to honour and celebrate police officers and personnel for the extraordinary work they do every day.”

Throughout this week on social media, Owen Sound Police Service will be highlighting the many ways in which our members continue to serve our community.

The annual Police Week in Ontario is sponsored by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General. It is part of the National Police Week led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.

Join the conversation on social media by using and following the hashtag #PoliceWeekON.
