PAO Quarterly Magazine

The PAO publishes its member magazine quarterly in January, April, July, and October. The first three issues of the year are available in print and online, while the Fall issue is online-only.

Though the majority of PAO communications are primarily circulated to the executive members of our member associations, the PAO magazine’s distribution list includes all 18,000 police personnel that fall within our membership across Ontario.

Issues of the magazine are available online for the past three years. Should you require an electronic copy of an older publication, please contact the PAO Office at communications@pao.ca or 416.487.9367.
