Chief Demkiw takes part in the 2023 Polar Plunge

On Saturday, February 25, 2023, members of the Toronto Police Service once again participated in the Annual Polar Plunge in support of Special Olympics Ontario. Chief Myron Demkiw and members of TPS were joined by other police services, law enforcement partners, Toronto Fire & EMS, as well as members of the public and athletes from the Special Olympics, as they took the plunge into frigid Lake Ontario at Budapest Park, with Toronto temperatures at -6c, and -11c with the wind chill. As supporters of the Special Olympics for over 30 years, and as original organizers and participants in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the Polar Plunge is a much loved fundraising activity for the Toronto Police Service family.
