Our Dad Our Hero!

Submitted byKassy and Tamara

Our dad has been an OPP officer since 1998. He has been a dedicated officer and is quite proud to serve his community. As children of a police officer we can share with you many stories of late nights, dad not being there for our events, dad missing our first goal in hockey, dad missing our dance recital, dad not being able to join us and participate in family functions, dad working around the clock. We have witnessed my dad, save a life while off, help stranded motorists on the highway, peace keeping while we are camping, stopping to ask if people were okay while they were parked on the side of the highway ALL WHILE OFF DUTY. I can’t begin to tell you what he does on duty. ALL THE ABOVE WAS BECAUSE HE IS DEDICATED OFFICER TO PROTECT YOU, THE PUBLIC!

However we can share with you that the public needs to be more aware that dad misses out on alot at home to protect them.

So many times they go unrecognized and are never thanked for the jobs they do on a daily basis whether on or off duty. The public complain more about what they don’t do or about the ticket the received or why this was done, rather than thinking about all the over and beyond work they do on a 24/7 basis. It is a thankless career that more people should recognize and once in a while thank them for caring so much for their community.

We submit this because we are very proud of our Dad, all the work he does for all of you and at the same time ensures that his family is well taken care of.

    CORRECTION TO ABOVE POSTING…Being his spouse I concur with my girls, it is definitely not easy being the spouse/father of a police officer. Although we can say it does have its rewards, that being that we know he truly loves and enjoys what he does and always there to serve and protect. When you see the smile on his face when he tells us, I helped this person today, I saved another, then I prevented what could have been chaos by removing an impaired driver off the road, brings a smile to our face. Seeing him always reaching out, never saying no, no matter what the situation is really rewarding to all of us. He is not only their Hero but mine. We love you dearly and thank you everyday for the great job you do.

    Aunt Lorraine read your story and I am so impressed at how smart and knowledgable you are regarding the career your Dad has chosen. When a Dad has the family support, he is able to do his job well in protecting our community. Needless to say, I am proud of both of you.
    Happy New Year

    Right on girls. It shows that you are very proud of your dad even though he has missed out on some very important and memorable events in your lives. I’m pretty sure he would have given anything to have been with you for all of them. You certainly have my vote.
