For the second year in a row, the Orangeville Police Service has been nominated for an award at the Dufferin Board of Trade 2017 Business Excellence Awards, to be presented later this fall. The Orangeville Police Service was nominated for the 2017 Association of the Year Award.
The Association of the Year Award recognizes a non-profit association, charity or agency that has made an outstanding contribution to the social, cultural or economic well-being of Dufferin County; is consistently responsive to community needs; delivers outstanding service to its beneficiaries and communicates a well-articulated vision and mission in support of a strong and viable community. The association will have shown innovation and leadership, and achieved outstanding success in the not-for-profit sector.
The Orangeville Police Service has been serving the citizens of Orangeville with pride and distinction since 1864. The staff of over 70 members is their strength as they collectively follow the steps in their business plan to build on their vision, mission and values. Their motto, “Community Focused” is something they strive for each and every day. Their actions and reactions have to show value for their citizens. A strong police visibility means they provide positive interaction with their community on a daily basis; whether that is in the schools, walking downtown, providing crime prevention tips to the business community, meeting with service clubs, donating at the food bank, or helping at charitable events.
The awards will be presented at the Dufferin Board of Trade 2017 Business Excellence Awards Gala on October 19, 2017 at the Mono Community Centre
