Our History

The Halton Regional Police Association was formed when legislation creating the Regional Municipality of Halton was enacted on January1, 1974.
The four municipal police associations of Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills were merged to create what is now the Halton Regional Police Association. At the time this occurred, the membership consisted of approximately 200 sworn members and 45 civilian members.

The Association's objective at that time mirrors that of its objective today, which is to improve the working conditions, wages, benefits, pension, and the workplace in general for members of the Association. The first President of the Halton Regional Police Association was Mr. Burrell Gailing, who held the office of president from September 1974 through August 1975.

Past HRPA Presidents after Mr. Gailing were:

 Al Reulens
Tom Sinkovich
Bill Gall
Bruce Richards
Charles Gardner
Garry Bogue
Ron Southgate
Colin Vrooman
Jim Dawson
Bill Henshaw
Dave Atkinson
