Joint Force Operations

Every year, a number of DRPS investigations involve working with police services across Ontario, Canada and sometimes globally. Our members are embedded in a number of Joint Forces Operations to share information with other police services, and federal and provincial authorities. These include the Provincial Asset Forfeiture Unit; the Provincial Biker Enforcement Unit; the Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit; the Criminal Intelligence Service of Ontario; the Provincial Anti-Terrorism Section; the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team; the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit and the Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement squad.
Project Kakia is an amazing example of a successful JFO partnership from 2021. This was a six-month multi-jurisdictional investigation led by the DRPS Gun and Gang Enforcement Unit in partnership with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Transnational Serious and Organized Crime Unit. Further support and funding was provided by the Ontario Government, Criminal Intelligence Service Ontario. Approximately $1.2 million in drugs and 32 firearms were seized during this investigation.
