The DRPS Homicide Unit and Durham Crown Attorney’s Office recently gathered in Oshawa to dedicate a Homicide Victim’s plaque to honour all victim's of homicide in Durham Region since the amalgamation of our Service in 1974.
There will be two Homicide Victim’s plaques, one displayed in the Crown’s office and the other in the Homicide office, which will stand as a reminder that the victims of homicide will never be forgotten and their families will never be alone.
Chief Mike Ewles, Inspectors Kim Bulloch and Dave Kimmerly, Crown Attorney Greg O’Driscoll, retired Crown Attorney John Scott, Deputy Crown Attorney Cindy Johnston and members from both the Homicide Unit and Crown Attorney’s Office were all present for the dedication.
“It is our first priority to respect the impact these tragedies have had on families, friends and communities,” said Chief Ewles. “However, we can never dismiss the impact it also has on our members, their families and our Justice partners. These selfless individuals dedicate their professional lives, often at great personal sacrifice, to see that justice is done. For that, we are fiercely proud and eternally grateful.”
