Safer Ontario Act – Bill 175 

 Across Ontario, police officers work hard to keep your community and family safe.

Ontario’s professional police support initiatives that enhance transparency, build public trust, and provide appropriate oversight, while ensuring that officers are able to do their jobs effectively.

But the Government of Ontario has proposed new policing legislation, Bill 175, that threatens to put public safety at risk by preventing police officers from doing their jobs and limiting due process for officers. The Bill could allow municipalities and the local police services board to:

  • Privatize police duties – like K-9, bomb disposal, crime scene analysis and surveillance activities – in criminal investigations

  • Fire police officers who are injured on the job

  • Prevent police officers from fairly responding to internal complaints

We need your help to ensure that Bill 175 does not impact your community’s safety. Your support will help ensure Bill 175 is corrected so police services can continue to protect you, your family and your community.

Send a message to the Ontario Government to let them know we need to keep police professionals working for public safety.

Ontario Police Memorial Golf Tournament

The Durham Regional Police Association has been honoured to host the Annual Ontario Police Memorial golf tournament, which, over the past nine years, has raised over $192,000 for the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation through its participants and generous sponsors.

We regretfully advise both our long-time and more recent participants and supporters this year’s tournament will be postponed until 2019 due to the withdrawal of our major sponsor. 

Without the sponsorship of this major company, the tournament is no longer a fiscally viable venture and with such short notice, we are unable to secure another sponsor who is able to provide the support we require to ensure a successful event.  As a result, registrations and payments that have been received for this year’s event will be returned.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, we will be reorganizing the tournament and look forward to your participation next year.

On behalf of the DRPA Board of Directors,


Colin Goodwin & Andrew Tummonds
