News Police Association helps developmentally disabled stay safe from COVID-19 SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Wednesday, May. 13th, 2020 Timmins Police Association president Const. Kevin Drynan and vice-president Const. Troy Larose deliver personal protective equipment to the Cochrane Temiskaming Resource Centre. Holding up signs of thanks from an appropriate physical distance are CTRC registered nurses Rylee Kaye and Megan Roy and director Melanie Marchand. (Photo supplied) Police officers are known for their support of Special Olympics and the torch run. So it’s natural that the Timmins Police Association would buy personal protective equipment for the Cochrane Temiskaming Resource Centre. TPA vice-president Troy Larose says the PPE will be used by staff at the centre’s two group homes for the developmentally disabled. “We all try to socially distance and not come in contact, there’s always that possibility, right?” says Larose. “So it’s keeping both the clientele and the workers safe.” It’s going to the Resource Centre’s for its group homes in Timmins and South Porcupine. “It’s the Timmins Police Association in collaboration with the Police Association of Ontario’s community support program,” Larose adds.
