Sgt. Colin Shaw
Durham Regional Police, Centralized Oshawa Problem-Based Response Unit (COPR)
As you may, or may not, be aware through a recent media release, the COPR unit is assisting in a Divisional Initiative to take back the streets of downtown Oshawa. At the time of the media release, a team of six officers drawn from our regular complement of our general patrol officers, and assisted by members of the COPR unit, began a proactive foot patrol blitz of our downtown, using highly visible foot patrol.
