North Bay Police Chief Scott Tod has been awarded the 2021 Recognition Award by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP).
The CACP states that the Recognition Award is given annually by the President of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police “to recognize a member in good standing who has consistently demonstrated exceptional involvement, extraordinary support, and outstanding initiative in advancing the CACP’s goals and strategic priorities. Chosen by the current President, with endorsement from the CACP Board of Directors, the winner of the distinguished CACP Recognition Award is considered to be a leader among leaders, an individual who exemplifies the association’s values of caring, courage, equity, integrity, openness, respect, transparency and trustworthiness.”
In a statement, the CACP said Chief Tod earned the award as a result of his “leadership of the Electronic Crime Committee and the invaluable advice and insight you bring to help law enforcement agencies across Canada keep up with the ever-changing fast pace of technology and evolving cybercrime threats.” The CACP also recognized Chief Tod’s work on the Canadian Integrated Response to Organized Crime Committee, which works to “advance national policing priorities related to organized crime, anti-terrorism, drug enforcement, and electronic crime.”
“Receiving the 2021 CACP Recognition Award is a tremendous honour for me,” said North Bay Police Chief Scott Tod. “I want to thank the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police for this award, but also for their exemplary, continued work helping to improve policing across Canada. I want to dedicate this award to our team of sworn and civilian members at the North Bay Police Service who keep the people of North Bay and Callander safe each and every day. Their hard work and commitment to the job of policing is an inspiration to me.”
The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police was founded in Toronto on September 6, 1905. The CACP works to support and promote efficient law enforcement and ensure the protection and security of the people of Canada through innovative police leadership.
