  • Question about Canada LODDs

    To our Canadian members: I am trying to research Canadian LODDs in the Niagara Region. I had expected simply to go to www.odmp.org to the Canadian officers' page, but I'm darned if I can find it, now that they have re-done the site.

    I found the Niagara Regional Police site, and have their roll of honor, and I have OPP, Niagara Detachment, but I am failing to come up with sources for other police services, such as RCMP, or any correctional officer lists.

    Can anyone help me? I am trying to prepare the roll of honor for our police week service Thursday, at which we remember both American and Canadian officers from our region (Lewiston being right on the border).

    Thanks!

      phillydog beat me to it....

      It looks like that website is being redone.
      The posts on this forum by this poster are of his personal opinion, and his personal opinion alone

        Thank goodness!

        Earlier I couldn't get any of it-- now at least part of it comes up.

        Thank you, phillydog and LA Dep!

          The individual officers' pages still don't come up, but hopefully they will get that going soon. I have the ones from the last several years, because I printed them out at the time, but I do not have anything pre-2000.

            I'd bet that if they don't have the CA site done soon, you could e-mail them and they would be more than helpful.

              I e-mailed them yesterday morning, before I posted this thread here, actually-- haven't heard from them yet, but just the change between yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon makes me think they are still working on it. Probably too busy to answer their e-mail, if they are!

              I haven't gone there yet today, but I am guessing I will see more progress yet, when I do.

                I could be wrong (I usually am!), but I do not believe that any RCMP have died while on duty in the Niagara Region.

                I am holding back, as best I can, from making jokes about the Commercial Crime guys dying from boredom! For those from "O" Div - "F" Div really is laughing AT, NOT with, you!

                  I've looked over the list, and here are the closest ones I can find:

                  Cst. George Edward Horan, 1937 (Belleville)
                  Cpl. Herbert Milton Smart, 1958 (Georgina Island)
                  2/Cst. Maurice Melnychuk, 1958 "
                  2/Cst. Glen Frederick Farough, 1958 "
                  2/Cst. David Melvyn Perry, 1958 "
                  2/Cst. George Herbert Edward Ransom, 1958 "
                  S/Cst. Joseph Henry Kent, 1941 (St. Catharine's)
                  2/Cst. James Boyd Henderson, 1948 (Kingston)
                  Cst. William Iraneus Seward, 1978 (Toronto)
                  Cst. Barry Flynn McKinnon, 1981 (Hamilton)

                  I am thinking the Hamilton and St. Catharine's constables are surely considered Niagara region, but I do not know how much farther afield to go.

                  What does "S/Cst" and "2/Cst" mean?

                    My "guess" would be senior or special or sub constable and maybe second class constable or second constable.

                      That's my guess, too, Joe-- or that S/Cst. means Staff Constable.

                      Since it is going into print for a solemn occasion, I want to make sure I get it right.

                        Unless the departments in question can tell you with certainty what the abbreviations mean, I think I would leave them as abbreviations.

                        P.S.

                        That is a very nice thing you are doing.

                          Thanks, Joe. This is the fourteenth year for this service-- and it's not really my service, it is organized by all the local chaplains and reps from the agencies. I'm just helping out with it.

                          I think you are right about keeping the abbreviations in place if I cannot get a definitive answer before it is time to go to the printer.

                            S/Cst = Special Constable. For the RCMP, it USED TO mean a Peace Officer, authorized to carry a firearm while on duty, trained to a lesser level than a Constable, with a restricted range of duties, usually prisoner escorting only, and NOT authorized to wear Red Serge. Not sure for other LE Agencies.

                            2/Cst = 2nd class Constable, referring to the seniority and pay level of the members of certain LE Agencies.

                              Also, Hamilton has its own stand-alone Police Service, while St Catharines, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie are covered by Niagara Region PS.
