Very well said Rick. It would be nice to see other police associations speak of this as well. Thank you to all police officers for putting your lives on the line everyday for the citizens of our communities. Stay safe !

Great to listen to this sincere report I back you 100%,it is insanity to reduce funding for our police forces, what a dangerous and stressful profession,! Please know you are appreciated!! Thank you!

Thank you Rick.Very well spoken.Much appreciated. Do not defund the police.We need them with us now more than ever.I am very proud of our LPS! Thank you for sharing this message

This is very well represented and presented. Please give it a listen, it is worth your time and consideration.

I think defunding would be an extremely dangerous step. All of Canada seems to have such a lack of police officers that it is as if defunding has already taken place! If defunding goes through in any country, I bet it will be reversed within a few years as the crime rates rise. The public will demand it. It sounds to me like London should receive funds for 20 officers, not 5! I don't know about you, but I would very much like an officer to show up quickly if I placed a call and not be placed in a response queue!

Thank You Rick for all you do in the London community as well as officers in all other communities. This is a thankless job and I for one am very grateful for the men/women in Blue. You have the toughest job out there. #bluelivesmatter #backtheblue #thinblueline A million thanks

Thanks for this intelligent and factual rebuttal Rick. Our members are well served by your leadership in getting in front of this issue. Keep up the great work!

Thank you Rick! Extremely well spoken! Thank you all for putting your lives on the line daily to keep our community safe! It does not go unnoticed nor is it unappreciated 💞

How many officers have been fired from the LPD in the past 20 years? Zero? Your union protects the officers that create calls for defunding. Accountability should be your number one priority. Also as for overtime, you closed the police station for 3 months from Covid19 and nothing changed.

Well said and so true. Where would we be without our Police Officers? We need more, not less, for everyone’s safety.

Thank you to every police officer !As for defunding the police it brings to mind what is happening south of the border.the police is hamstrung in many areas .They have riots and looting and more,why would we defund our defenders??We are Canada ,we are our own country ,we don’t have to do what America is doing.

Maybe instead of defunding the police we support them. In every police cruiser there should be one officer and one mental health / substance abuse worker that is trained to compliment the police in the community.

Well stated. Those people wanting to defund the police should go to a violent situation that police deal with every day and then maybe they won’t be so quick to demand defunding! Also defunding the police won’t erase racism, education will!

Good speech It is absolutely crazy to defund the police Where has everyone’s common sense gone

Well spoken! Londoners need to stand and support the LPS. These demonstrations have gone too far! We all have rights, and all lives matter!

Unfortunately the pressure put on our police is causing more stress on them and deterring future potential new recruits. We will in fact be facing a shortage of officers if this continues. Go back 50 years and see how many officers were needed in a community like London. I am almost positive that number was far less. Now we can't keep up to the current status across North America.. It is a very sad reality and in a perfect world, we wouldn't need to be concerned. Here's a concept...if everyone obeyed the law such as no thefts, violence like spousal abuse, child abuse, sexual interference, GUNS etc... oh and when an officer asks you to cooperate, simply adhere to their requests, we would be in great shape. Great concept in my books. Thanks Rick and London Police. We appreciate all that you do. You are heroes and not the enemy.

Awesome job Rick. Well said. Thank you.

This was a very informative message. What scares me is in the years to come who do I call for when I need help and protection? I have never been in favour of keeping a personal gun in my home but maybe I will need one to protect myself from criminals that will be allowed to roam at will!????

Thank you! We are so fortunate to have you representing us and our community. Your message to the community we live in rings loud and clear. Well said

I support our police forces everywhere, let’s not let a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch. I appreciate your efforts to make us all safe. Defunding is not the right approach #fundthepolice

Thank you Rick and the other Association members. We are stronger because of you.

Rick Robson your a fantastic leader. Well done and thank you for your strong, articulate and powerful voice advocating for all members of the police and community as a whole. I know your comments and sentiment are echoed in smaller communities all around the greater London area where we also serve with pride and strive to be the best we can for every member of our community. I’m a proud former member of the LPA and thank you for this message.

Thank you Rick for your words of wisdom and for your leadership! We are all in this together

So unfortunate, London was a great city to live in.

I asked the Carlton University authors to make a statement, and they did, to confirm that SRO Program does not benefit all students. It benefits most students while harming the minority. TDSB recognized that and cancelled thier SRO program. I call on you to make a statement confirm that, rather than continue to spread misinformation.
