Public Heroes

Every year, Intercultural Dialogue Institute Ottawa organizes Public Heroes Awards Ceremony to honour the outstanding service of Ottawa Police (OPS) in maintaining public safety in the city of Ottawa. The aim of the ceremony and the award is to recognize dedication and excellence of individual members of OPS in delivering their services in an ethnically and culturally diverse environment. Award recipients are selected in collaboration with OPS, on three criteria: “Altruism”, “Dedication” and “Community Involvement”.
