How Many Unsafe Vehicles Have These Halton Police Officers Nabbed?
A pair of Halton police officers are being recognized for their dedication to keeping streets in Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Halton Hills, and beyond safer after identifying and removing more than 2,100 hazardous vehicles from area roads.
"Traffic safety remains a key pillar of community safety and well-being in our growing and increasingly travelled region," said Deputy Chief of Police Nishan Duraiappah.
Const. Pat Martin and Const. Scott Oldfield were awarded the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) 2017 Traffic Safety Award of Excellence in Waterloo on June 12.
They were honoured for their dedication to promoting commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safety.
Martin and Oldfield have investigated more than 75 collisions involving a commercial motor vehicle, making them the most productive CMV inspection team in the province.
They’re also the driving force behind one of Ontario's largest safety crackdowns: the Mohawk Blitz at Milton’s Mohawk Racetrack.
OPP Chief Supt. Chuck Cox said “it's important work that deserves to be recognized."
