Statement on Today’s Tragic Events on Parliament Hill – OACP

The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police

Ontario’s Police Leaders


Our thoughts are with the member of the Canadian Forces who was injured in Ottawa earlier today and with his family and colleagues. We also remember those members of the Canadian Forces involved in the tragic incident in Quebec earlier this week and their families.

In light of these tragic incidents and recent developments relating to terrorists/radical incidents both in North America and abroad and the recent raising of Canada’s Terrorism Threat Level from LOW to Medium, members of the public are urged to be vigilant. We also remind police officers to be attentive when conducting their tours of duty. During these difficult times, we must all pull together to keep our communities safe.

Citizens who witness illegal or suspicious activities or behaviours of concern should contact their local police service and describe what they witness.

Officers are also asked to be cognizant of all military reserve buildings, legions, and related facilities and government buildings that are located in their particular patrol zones.  We urge all our officers to take all precautions to ensure their safety, and the safety of all members of the public, AT ALL TIMES.
