Welcome to the Police Appreciation Dinner and Awards Night (PADAN) website.
Please save the date for this year's event: October 19, 2023. This is the first year I will be attending this amazing event as Chief of Police.
Over the past 19 years, PADAN has raised more than $1.5 million to fund special programs - such as Senior's Christmas events at long-term care homes - and purchase policing equipment - including specialty protective gear for our beloved K-9 dogs and so much more.
Your support shows our members that you appreciate the great work they do, often under challenging and dangerous circumstances. The funding provided is the community's way of acknowledging the dedication of our members.
I want to thank all the members of the PADAN committee for their hard work and support for our Service. They are community leaders and the champions for the Region and their time and dedication is greatly appreciated.
Chief of Police
