The Ottawa Police Service’s volunteers are the backbone of our organization. These individuals help us at public events in communities city-wide and help to educate residents on things like crime prevention techniques and personal safety. In 2019, Andrew Hayes celebrated 35 years as a volunteer with the OPS, Tony D’Angelo celebrated 30 years, and Michael Ingram and Jeffrey Bileski both celebrated 25 years of helping to serve the city of Ottawa, providing a much-needed service to the public.
