On May 23, three police forces worked together to conduct Exercise Kinetic Watchdog at 22 Wing / Canadian Forces Base North Bay focusing on multi-agency interoperability during critical incidents.
Coordinated by the 22 Military Police Flight, the OPP, North Bay Detachment, OPP Emergency Response Team, OPP Canine, OPP Remotely Piloted Aerial System and the North Bay Police Service Emergency Response Team successfully tested and confirmed emergency response procedures under demanding and dynamic circumstances.
Representing federal, provincial, and municipal law enforcement agencies, officers coordinated and synchronized personnel and resources to contain exercise threats and practiced the coordination between agencies in the case of a threat in 22 Wing and surrounding communities.
"This exercise, organized by 22 Military Police Flight, demonstrates an excellent collaboration between police services," said Staff Sergeant William McMullen, Detachment Commander, North Bay OPP. "Cooperation among law enforcement agencies and jurisdictions is paramount to the success of our various undertakings. This type of operation is designed to identify areas of improvement and build upon the existing relationships that have proven successful in the past."
