Members of the Durham Regional Police continue to deliver outstanding service to the community and are recognized across Canada as leaders in investigative techniques.
That's the message Chief Constable Mike Ewles delivered Friday night at the annual general meeting of the Scugog Chamber of Commerce in Port Perry.
From innovative approaches involving the Festive R.I.D.E. campaign to major crime investigations of provincial, national and even international scope, the DRPS is doing a great job because it has great people.
"Part of my job as Chief is to get the right people in the right positions, then get out of their way!" he said in a lighthearted tone.
He told the gathering that Durham Region is one of the safest places in Canada to live, work and play and that communities in north Durham, including Port Perry, enjoyed moderately low levels of criminal activity.
Chief Ewles took questions from the floor and the topics ranged from his position on the legalization of marihuana in Canada to the advantages of diverting youth away from the traditional court system.
