Honouring those who paid the ultimate price to keep our communities safe

Each year, on the last Sunday in September, police and peace officers gather on Parliament Hill to honour officers killed in the line of duty. The ceremony began in 1978, with 14 officers being honoured. Sadly, since then the list has grown to more than 860 names.

Representatives from the Timmins Police Service who attended the ceremony in Ottawa on Sunday, September 25 included Deputy Chief Des Walsh, Inspector Henry Dacosta, Sgt. Lorne Yee and Cst. Dean Bordignon.

We thank and honour all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities safe.
