Tom Murray is a retired Ontario Provincial Police officer who founded the OPP’s K-9 detection programme in 1978. During his time with the OPP, he and his team worked on a number of high-profile cases and provided security and detection services for a number of VIPs in Canada, including the Pope, the Queen, and more than one president. He also assisted a number of other police departments and services including the RCMP and Maryland State Police in developing their K-9 programmes. After leaving the OPP, Tom founded Canadian Canine Detection Services, which provided and trained dogs for governments and the private sector.

I think this should be a good event, Tom is very excited about it. I’ve asked him to do a short overview of what he did with the dogs and to tell us some of his “war stories.”

Looking forward to seeing you on February 14 at 7 pm at the Honeywell Room (second floor) of the Ottawa City Hall (110 Laurier Avenue West).
