Mary Gagliardi, Ontario Provincial Police

Mary's title may be Community Safety Officer, but she wears many hats. She talks about normal safeties like her "Lock it or Lose it" program and speaks to teens at the local high schools. She is also Haldimand's broadcaster, reporting on the all happenings, both good and bad. She is straight to the point and speaks well. She focuses on water safety, which is very important in Haldimand due to the speed of the Grand River, the undertows of Lake Erie and, in the winter, those dangerous ice mounds that no one should walk on. She has been on the force for almost 23 years and is a role model to any young women considering a career in policing.
