History of the #10 O.P.P.V.A. Pembroke Chapter

 

Prior to the formation of the O.P.P.V.A. #10 Pembroke Chapter,

the retirees in this area were members of the #10 Perth Chapter.

******

 

During the latter part of 1995,

Brothers George Sullivan and Peter van Hoof, Pembroke, Ontario,

looked into the possibility of forming a Veterans' Chapter

located in the northern part of what was then known

as the # 10 District with the O.P.P. Headquarters

located in Perth, Ontario.

 

The first luncheon meeting took place at Fred's Restaurant, Chapeau, Quebec

on Wednesday, January 17th, 1996

and the Chapter was formed at that time.

 

Brother Sullivan was elected Chairman and Brother van Hoof was elected Secretary/treasurer for that year.

 

The Chapter subsequently received its

Charter in 1997.

******

 

History of the former Pembroke Police Service

 

 

On February 8, 1878 , a motion was passed by the Council of the Town of Pembroke to hire a Town Constable.

It was not until November 15, 1878 that James Devlin was hired at a salary of $400.00 per year.

Constable Devlin lived on Cemetery St , now know as Miller Street , in Pembroke.

Some of the duties of the Town Constable at that time, included the collection of taxes, and the maintenance of platforms (sidewalks) and the pumping station.

Constable Devlin also assumed the role of Truant Officer and Dog Catcher.

For six years between 1872 and 1878, the Town of Pembroke , and its surrounding area,

was patrolled solely by two County Constables ,

one of whom was Daniel H. Duffy, who in 1881 became the Chief of Police for the town of Pembroke and

a constable Dennison.

Chiefs of Police that followed Chief Duffy included

Michael Lee, Chief Butler, Harry Carrol, David McLaughlin, Thomas Espy and Dan Carnegie.

In September 1925, D.J (Dan) Carnegie enlisted with the Pembroke Police force.

Carnegie was promoted to Sergeant and later to Chief Constable in 1943.

The entire Pembroke Police Force at that time consisted of nine men.

Chief Carnegie maintained the position of Chief for 19 years before his retirement in 1962.

It was November 1, 1941 when Bert S. Dickie enlisted with the Pembroke Police Force.

He left the force however, to serve his country with the

Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II, returning to his duties June of 1946.

Shortly after his return, Dickie was promoted to the position of

Sergeant on March 1, 1947 and then again to the role of Inspector on February 1, 1954 .

Inspector Dickie was promoted to Chief Constable in 1962.

Bert S. Dickie served as Chief of Police for Pembroke for a period of 21 years

and retired in 1983

Sergeant Robert Purvis became Chief of Police upon Chief Dickie’s retirement in 1983 and served

until his own retirement on June 28, 1991.  

In 1991, Donald Kidder took over the role of Chief and continued in this capacity

until he retired on April 30, 1999.  

In 1999, Blair MacIssac succeeded Chief Kidder and served as Chief of Police until his successor,

Acting Deputy Chief David Hawkins took over the reins in 2007.

Chief David Hawkins began his policing career with the Pembroke Police Force on October 1, 1978.  

As a Sergeant he was named Acting Deputy Chief in June 2006 and further designated as Acting Chief in May 2007.  

He was officially appointed to the position of Chief of Police on October 20, 2007

until his retirement in 2013 when the O.P.P. took over the duties of policing the City of Pembroke.

The Pembroke Police Service has grown from a force of one Constable to the quality group of individuals

who were its makeup.  

The Service had a complement of 58 members in 2009.  

These members were comprised of 30 officers, 16 full-time civilians

(including clerical, dispatchers and 6 Special Constables)  

as well as 12 part-time Special Constables who also provided essential services to the community.

Since 1878, the Pembroke Police Force grew and matured into the Pembroke Police Service

and dedicated itself to providing

the best possible service it could to the community of Pembroke.

Due to increasing costs, the Police Services Board recommended to the Pembroke City Council

that the Ontario Provincial Police be approached

to provide a costing for police services for the City of Pembroke. 

Council agreed with the recommendation and proceeded accordingly.

After analyzing financial and operational implications,

after gathering and considering input from local rate payers

and after considerable soul searching,

on March 20, 2012, the Pembroke City Council made the difficult decision to contract

with the O.P.P. to provide policing service to the City of Pembroke. 

The Pembroke Police Services Board

fully supported this decision. 

On July 6, 2013, the transition from Pembroke Police Service to O.P.P. policing was completed. 

The Police Station remained located at 169 William Street, Pembroke, Ontario

while the new location was being completed. 

In early 2015, the new O.P.P. Pembroke police office was opened for service

and is located at 77 International Drive, Pembroke, Ontario.

O.P.P. Association " Move Over " Video

 

 

Published on Jun 10, 2015

Since 1989, five members of the OPP Association have been killed in roadside collisions.

Despite more than 10 years of education, more than 11,000 tickets being issued by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP)

and two hundred and fifty additional reminder signs being placed by the Ministry of Transportation at the request of the OPPA,

many motorists are still unaware of the “Move Over” law or the fact that it has been on the books since 2003.

History

The Ontario Provincial Police Veterans' Association (OPPVA), was formed by Letters Patent on June 6, 1969.

In 1970, the first Executive Board was chosen at the inaugural meeting in Toronto.

Elmer Hoath was named president, Alan Williams vice president, James Stanton secretary, and George Halliday treasurer.

The directors were David L. Mitchell, Charles Wood, Alexander MacLeod, John Clark and Clarence Parmenter.

The original three Chapters totaling 150 members, formed in Kenora, London and Niagara Falls,

have grown to 22 with more than 1,600 members.

The original signators were: David Mitchell, Syl Napolitano, Ross Ball, James Stanton, Alan Williams,

Stewart Foster, Robert Adams, Arthur Hope, George Halliday and Arthur Laing.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude for the foresight and dedication of these members.

It is our objective to maintain and foster the goodwill and fellowship they envisioned and continues to grow.

 

Objectives

B. To be of service to the Ontario government;

C. To cooperate with and render assistance to the Ontario Provincial Police in all matters of concern;

D. To promote the social, physical and economic welfare of former members and the auxiliary.

These efforts are supported and reinforced by the OPP, OPP Association,

OPP Commissioned Officers Association and the OPP Auxiliary.

All retired OPP members are life members of the OPPA.

Widows and dependents also receive the attention of the OPPA and OPPVA.

In retirement, these Associations serve as an extension of the Force, whether it be in safeguarding

the pensions and various benefits or maintaining friendships and communications within the police family.

The International Police Association

 

The International Police Association is dedicated

" to unite in service and friendship all active and retired members

of the law enforcement services throughout the world ".

Membership now exceeds 460,000 officers in over 66 countries

and is steadily rising.

The I.P.A. is not a labour organization and does not involved

itself in the advancement of

politics, religion, racial matters, discussions involving

employment codes, discipline, working conditions, pay or pensions.

 

Region 6 Ottawa-Eastern Ontario

 

Region 6 was formed on September 12th, 2015

and has members representing serving and retired members of

Federal/Provincial/Municipal policing and the Canada Border Service Agency.

Thre are many reasons why our members joined

but perhaps the greatest draw,

after comradeship and social interaction, is in regards to travel.

Any I.P.A. member who travels abroad and files a travel form

is usually met by an I.P.A. member from that country.

For additional information about the I.P.A. and the membership,

In the first three months, the clinics have had over 90 visits from youth and/or family members

wanting to talk about suicidal thoughts, family crisis, self-injury and other mental health related issues

such as anxiety.

******

 

The Crisis Support Clinics

provide front line de-escalation support, safety planning, education and referral to appropriate agencies.

The clinics are based on a three tier level of service:

A walk-in clinic, a peer-to-peer parent support group and community suicide alert training.
