Officers from Durham Regional Police Service joined in the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Run on Sep. 23 to show their support for the upcoming memorial service in Ottawa.
The run is aimed at raising public's awareness for the National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service held on Parliament Hill on the last Sunday of every September. This year, Durham Regional Police has committed a team of runners to be part of the 190 member relay team that will participate in the 460 kilometre run. Our team of Staff Sergeant Dean Bertrim, Detectives Michelle Hoard, Tim Hoard and Melanie Anderson will have run a combined total of 350 kilometres over the next few days.
These members are proud to represent the Service in honouring our brothers and sisters in the law enforcement community who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The run also provides the law enforcement community with the opportunity to personally honour and pay tribute to colleagues and comrades who have fallen in the line of duty.
Members from DRP, as well as thousands of police and peace officers from across the country will be attending the 33rd National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Service on September 26.
For more information regarding the service in Ottawa, please visit the Canadian Police Association website.
