Faces and Places:
Moments in OPP history
Welcome to Faces and Places: moments in OPP history, an exhibit celebrating more than 100 years of proud policing tradition. Withinthis exhibit we present some of the Faces that make up this organization. A "behind the badge" look at a selection of men and women whose unique personalities, choices and wide ranging areas of expertise make up the fabric of the OPP from its foundation in 1909, to today.
We examine the wide ranging Places where the OPP have lived and worked. From the early canvas tents and log cabins that served as both office and home, to newly constructed state-of-the-art detachments outfitted with the latest equipment; the OPP utilizes the resources it has available to get the job done.
By bringing together a diverse group of people to police a province as equally varied and unique as Ontario, the OPP has much to celebrate. We hope that you enjoy examining some of the Moments where triumph and tragedy, progress and failure, victory and defeat, have impacted not just a police force, but have built a province worthy of exploring.
