In recognition of National Volunteer Week (April 23 – 29, 2017), members from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to take the time to thank all those who have helped to make our community safer, stronger, and a splendid place to live and play.
We would like to thank our Auxiliary OPP members, 22 in total, who take the time out of their busy schedules to donate their time and service to our community. The duties of an Auxiliary member can include: patrols with regular members; assisting with community events; conducting seat belt clinics; and assisting with RIDE initiatives, safety displays, presentations, victim assistance and ceremonial duties.
We would also like to thank all those who volunteer their time in our Restorative Justice Program, 9 members in total. For those not familiar with restorative justice, the focus is on repairing the harm caused by offenders to victims of crime and the community by bringing all parties together to discuss the incident and form a mutually agreed upon resolution.
Lastly, we would like to thank all of the individuals, businesses and organizations that have supported our community events like Shop with A Cop and our Youth Leadership Program. It is because of your help that we are able to help others, so a big thank you to: Auto Block Auto Repair, the Caledon Village Association, Dairy Queen (Bolton), Foodland (Caledon East), Four Corners Bakery, Futureshield, Garden Foods, Home Depot (Bolton), Kinsmen Club of Bolton, Long Environmental Consultants Inc., HP Canada Co., Markdale Aggregates Inc., MVS Designs, Olympia Sand and Gravel, OPPA Branch 5, Optimist Club of Caledon, Oxford Learning Centre, Pacific Paving Ltd, Parkview Transit, Peel District School Board, Pizzaville, Robert F.
