OPP shows off a new cruiser

The OPP is showing off a new vehicle.

It’s bright orange in colour and is the Truth and Reconciliation cruiser.

Inspector Jeff Duggan says they borrowed it from head office in Orillia from their Indigenous Policing Bureau.

“It has a very symbolic meaningful, I would say it’s a paint job, but it’s a wrap,” Duggan explained as the cruiser was parked in front of the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday.

“So everything means something and it’s part of Truth and Reconciliation recommendations to bring awareness to everything that happened in the past.”

Duggan says a second Truth and Reconciliation vehicle is waiting to be wrapped and will be stationed at the Kenora Detachment.

“I’m happy to say that we do have one coming so that we can take it to special events.  We can take it around the community and we can use it as a Community Service vehicle for our officers to drive just to bring awareness to Truth and Reconciliation.”

Duggan says they already have a vehicle they want wrapped but they want to find a company in northwestern Ontario to do the work.

It costs over $5,000 to have the cruiser decorated but he says they have the money in the budget to do the work.
