TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) recently honoured Cindy Lawrence, Halton Regional Police Service with a Safety Leadership Award for her work with the Halton Regional Police Service Children’s Safety Village. The Halton Regional Police Service Children’s Safety Village is a miniature town with buildings, sidewalks, roads and traffic signals. It opened in 1987 and has approximately 10,000 children visit each year for free safety-based classes. The safety village has also worked with OTLA members to run the Helmets on Kids program.
The OTLA Safety Leadership Awards were established in 2011 to honour individuals or organizations that have made “remarkable and extensive contributions towards enhancing safety awareness in their communities in Ontario and helped to prevent injury to those around them.”
