Press Release

HAMILTON, ON, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) - Burlington Detachment, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) - Stoney Creek Detachment, and the Hamilton Police Service (HPS) are participating in an officer "exchange" program commencing February 03, 2013. Each department will host an officer from the other force for a three month period of time. 

This program will expose the participating officers to the different duties normally attributed to each individual agency including enforcement of a diverse range of federal and provincial statutes. This exchange is expected to broaden the respective knowledge base and expose each officer to the unique duties and tasks that they may not normally encounter with their own police service.

For those people traveling on the Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 403 and other highways in the Halton/Hamilton area, they should expect to see both Hamilton Police and RCMP uniformed officers participating in highway safety duties with the OPP detachment. Hamiltonians should expect to see both RCMP and OPP officers responding to calls for service within the city limits.

Public safety is always the primary concern and this program will allow for more visibility, accessibility and interaction amongst the participating agencies. The public will also have the opportunity to interact with these police officers in a unique manner.
