About the award

Every day, thousands of Ontarians rely on professional police officers, 9-1-1 dispatchers and other police service personnel to keep their families and communities safe.

The Police Association of Ontario (PAO) is proud to facilitate the Annual Police Services Hero of the Year Award, which provides the public with an opportunity to nominate and recognize their hero for the work they do on behalf of Ontarians. This nomination can be related to a specific event whereby a Police Officer or a Civilian Police Services Employee went above and beyond the call of duty, or it can be in recognition for their ongoing support and involvement within their respective community.
