Mike McCormack is the President of the Toronto Police Association, the largest of it's kind in Canada representing over 8,000 members both sworn and civilian.
Mike comes from a deep policing tradition and like he mentioned in the interview, his dad went up the management side to become Chief and Mike chose the other side to become president.
I'm not sure which title I would rather hold, Chief or president. What the two men have in common is an incredible duty of service to others and Mike has taken the police association in a direction that has increased awareness of the importance to tell the message of what it takes, "to protect those, who protect others."
During this episode, Mike talks about the Toronto Police Transformational Task Force*, public safety, "Carding" and offers advice to other associations.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
