The Hamilton Police Service is participating in an officer exchange program.
The program will see officers from Hamilton, the Burlington detachment of the OPP and the Stoney Creek detachment of the RCMP host an officer from the other force for three months.
Those traveling on the QEW, Highway 403 and other highways in the Hamilton and Halton area will see both Hamilton Police and RCMP uniformed officers involved in highway safety duties with the OPP.
Hamiltonians can also expect to see both RCMP and OPP officers responding to calls for service within the city limits.
The program is aimed at broadening the officers' knowledge base as they are exposed to the different duties normally attributed to each individual agency.
