At the 6th annual Scrimmage at the Shores, DRPS officers and a team from Ontario Shores enjoyed a friendly game of ball hockey in support of mental health.
Chief Martin was on hand to drop the puck along with Ontario Shores CFO John Chen. The game was very closely matched, but in the end Ontario Shored beat DRPS by a score of 10-8!
The annual game aims to strengthen the mutual relationship between DRPS and Ontario Shores to support those with mental illness. It also builds bridges between patients and police.
Successful partnerships continue to grow between our DRPS Mental Health Support Unit and members of Ontario Shores, along with those in crisis in the community.
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon.
