PPAO SPOTLIGHT

PPAO Spotlight

The PPAO Spotlight is a new feature that allows us to tell the story of other police retiree groups, their history and accomplishments.  For our 20 year anniversary, we at the PPAO will be highlighting all of the founding member organizations.  We honour this group as they were the genesis of the Police Pensioners Association of Ontario and all deserve equal recognition.
