On Thursday, September 16th, the presentation of the first annual police award in Ontario that specifically recognizes law enforcement efforts towards mental injuries and illness was made. This award, bringing awareness while removing stigma of psychological matters was donated by the Rotary Club of Bracebridge- Muskoka Lakes. It honours one outstanding OPP member yearly, who has contributed unselfishly to address mental injuries and mental wellness within the Force jurisdiction across Ontario.
