CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall Police Service (CPS) signed an agreement with Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) on Monday, Dec. 09.

WWC offers mental health and support programs for soldiers and first responders. CPS will refer members in need of mental health support to WWC programs through this new agreement.

“The health and well-being of our employees is a major priority of the CPS,” said Chief of Police, Danny Aikman. “Our people are our greatest assets, who work endlessly to help others, and these employees deserve to have the same supports available to assist them when they are in need. This partnership will enable the CPS to provide our employees with the appropriate supports for any mental health challenges they or their families may face.”

“This partnership recognizes that no single organization can do it all when it comes to mental health support,” says Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada. “When a First Responder is struggling, what matters is that the member and their family knows that we are in this together – working to ensure they receive the help they so rightly deserve. We look forward to working with Cornwall Police Service in the months and years ahead.”
