Jeff and Peter,

Congratulations to the both of you on your historic promotion(s) to the rank of Inspector with the Durham Regional Police Service.  I am extremely proud of the both of you who have proved that competence counts, and hard work pays off.  I am happy that we as Black police and peace officers can experience the thrill of two significant promotions at the same time in policing.  It is even more significant to the men and women from your community who serve, protect, and correct that your promotions occurred during this year the 25th Anniversary of the formation of the Association of Black Law Enforcers.  Peter Butler III widely believed to be one of Canada's first official Black police officers in 1883 experienced challenges.  Others who have gone before you have also experienced challenges.  You too will face challenges; the difference now is that you have more people to suppoprt you in your continuous quest for success.

 

I have taken the liberty of advising our brother and sister colleagues in the USA and UK of this proud moment in Canadian policing history.  Again, congratulations on your achievement.

 

With the most respect,

 

David
