Our first Durham Regional Police Appreciation Dinner and Awards Night was held in November 2003 at Trafalgar Castle in Whitby. Since then more than 1.4 million has been raised for local policing programs.

Thanks to your generous contributions, numerous important community policing programs have been funded, helping the Durham Regional Police Service make our community one of the safest in which to live, work and play:

  • DRPS Disabled Children's Games
  • Specialized vehicles for disabled kids for use in the Kids' Safety Village
  • The Ripple Effect Youth Forum
  • Saturn Youth Camp
  • DRPS Pipes and Drums
  • Racing Against Drugs child education program
  • Equipment for the Intelligence Branch
  • ProAction Cops & Kids Wilderness Camp
  • Special Olympics Ontario
  • Portable Tents for Community Services
  • Chief's 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament
  • Police Bicycles
