PAO News Releases

The PAO takes positions on various issues related to policing in Ontario and to our police personnel members, and often will write news releases, letters to the editor, and/or opinion pieces regarding those issues in order to advocate for our position and build public and stakeholder awareness.

Below, you will find documents outlining the PAO’s position on issues over the past two years. Should you require PAO news releases over two years old, please contact the PAO Office at or 416.487.9367.
