Members bid Inspector Charlie Green a fond farewell as the 40-year DRP officer officially hangs up his hat today.
The precision of his retirement date today, exactly 40 years to the day he began, is a fitting end to his career. Insp. Green is known for his precision and eye for detail, becoming one of Canada's premier experts on all things protocol.
Chief Paul Martin thanked Insp. Green for his long-time commitment to the DRPS and the policing community across the country; noting his ongoing contribution to both the national and ontario police memorials.
At a recent Police Services Board meeting Board Chair Roger Anderson thanked Insp. Green for his respect for the police service and his respect for the uniform. Chair Anderson says our police service will not be the same without him.
For several years, Insp. Green led the logistical arrangements at the Ontario Police Ceremony of Remembrance at Queen's Park. In 2006 he was chosen to serve as an Aide de Camp for the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. In 2007 he received the prestigious Order of Merit of Police Forces for his exceptional merit, contributions to policing and community development.
He also wears the Queen's Golden Jubilee medal. He began his career as a Dispatcher with the OPP (Whitby Detachment) in October 1972 until joining the DRP as a police constable in June 1975. During his time with the O.P.P., he also served as an O.P.P. Auxiliary Officer.
The DRPS wishes Insp. Green all the best in his future endeavours.
