Photobook Commemorates 50th Anniversary of York Regional Police
York Regional Police compiled a photobook highlighting the last 50 years of policing in York Region. The book is 258 pages in length and includes historic images recovered and restored from archives of members past and present. Two years of research was conducted to review historic newspapers, reports, magazines, and other media, which is reflected in the accompanying stories in the book. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Special Olympics Ontario and United Way.
Purchase of Conducted Energy Weapons
Conducted Energy Weapons (CEW) have been approved for law enforcement use by the Ministry of the Solicitor General since 2002. The CEW program was originally implemented by York Regional Police in 2014, where the earlier Taser X2 CEW platform was first integrated. CEWs are a less lethal force option than firearms.
At its June meeting, the Board approved the direct purchase and supply of the Taser 7 CEW. York Regional Police is replacing and transitioning from the current Taser X2 CEW Platform to the new Taser 7 CEW model which has many technological advantages over the Taser X2 model. Major advancements include a rechargeable battery, automatic download of data/evidence and automatic device updates. Conducted Energy Weapons Board Report
