Police Week

Ottawa Police celebrates Police Week from May 9 - 15th

Since 1970, Police Week has been observed in May to coincide with Peace Officers Memorial Day, recognized internationally on May 15. The Ministry of the Solicitor General has designated May 9 to 15, 2020 as Police Week in Ontario and this year's theme is "Working together to keep our communities safe".


This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual Police Week celebrations will no doubt look a little different. Recognizing that we need to respect physical distancing public health guidelines, we are celebrating the hard work and dedication of our members virtually!

Watch for informative, interactive and fun virtual events from some of your favourite Ottawa Police members on social media including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
