Cst. Mitch Dumont - Niagara Region Police Service

Mitch is an Indigenous police officer who goes above and beyond to connect his community and members of his police force to bridge the misconceptions around Indigenous people and Police Services by connecting and partnering with Indigenous organizations so that community members are receiving the proper support while eliminating barriers and misconceptions. Mitch is an outstanding leader in his community for anyone from youth to elders. As an Indigenous leader of the Niagara Region, I’ve never felt the closeness of our partnership that Mitch was able to help create within his community and the sense of safety community members have in the presence of Mitch and NRPS. I believe that an officer dedicated to his work and community deserves to be nominated for their outstanding contributions to their community.
