On May 24, 2013 Halton Regional Police Deputy Chief Bob Percy will travel to Rideau Hall to receive the Governor General’s Order of Merit of the Police Forces.

The Order of Merit of the Police Forces is an honour for merit that is, within the Canadian system of honours, the only such fellowship reserved solely for members of Canada’s various police forces.

The Order was created in 2000, to honour a career of exceptional service or distinctive merit displayed by the men and women of Canadian police forces. The primary focus is on exceptional merit, contributions to policing and community development.

Deputy Chief Percy began his career in 1984 and has an extensive operational background including work within Criminal Investigations, Tactical Rescue Unit, Quality Assurance, Professional Standards Bureau and Special Projects.

Policing is a great profession that provides a lot of opportunities to get involved and make a difference. – Deputy Chief Bob Percy

In July 2002, Deputy Chief Percy oversaw the Service’s response to World Youth Day, a 4-day event that spanned three venues and involved nearly 100 officers.

Following this, he coordinated the pilot project for the Service’s first Diversity Team that received recognition from The Human Rights and Race Relations Centre Gold Medal for Excellence and the Ontario Crime Control Commission Award of Excellence.

Promoted to Inspector in 2005, Deputy Chief Percy was assigned as Commander of Community Policing Support and eventually took over as Commander of Emergency Services in 2007. Later in 2007 he was promoted to Superintendent and was assigned as District Commander of Oakville.

In 2008, Deputy Chief Percy was identified as the new Deputy Chief of Community Policing Administration and in 2009, took over responsibility for Community Policing Operations. As of January 2013, Deputy Chief Percy oversees Support Services.

Continually engaged within the community, Deputy Chief Percy is an active member of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police. He is the Chair of the Victim Assistance Committee and a Representative of the Provincial Anti-Insurance Task Force. He is also the Chair of the Halton Industry Education Council.

Deputy Chief Percy is an advocate of lifelong learning and holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree from the University of Guelph Humber and a Master of Arts Leadership from the University of Guelph.

“I am truly honoured to be receiving The Order of Merit. Policing is a great profession that provides a lot of opportunities to get involved and make a difference. It is humbling to be recognized for contributions made over the course of my career particularly when our Service is made up of so many deserving people who contribute to the community in so many ways. I am proud to be part of such a great organization,” said Deputy Chief Percy.
