About Sergeant Bob
Who Is Sergeant Bob?

Following his retirement in 2007 from OPP General Head Quarters in Orillia, Ontario, Sergeant Bob Paterson has remained involved in traffic safety, community safety and public education.

During his 17 years as an OPP Officer, and 15 years with the Toronto Ambulance Service (now known as Toronto EMS) Sergeant Bob recognized the need to spend more time on prevention and public education.

“More upsetting than responding to many emergencies was the obvious reality that a small amount of planning or situational awareness could have prevented deaths, injury and property loss” recalls Sergeant Bob.

Sergeant Bob specializes in modern crime and injury prevention tips for on the road, while at home or while travelling. Tips are helpful for all ages but an emphasis is placed on information that is helpful to mature / senior Canadians. Because crime and injury prevention tips that worked 10 years ago may not be the best advice for today's seniors, Bob stays up-to-date through police and non-governmental organization memberships and participation.

“We cannot worry away our days fretting over every minor detail and threat. We’re all too busy and we want to have a nice time. So simply by adding a small and occasional dose of preparation to our activities, we can avoid a lot of anxiety and regret”.

Sergeant Bob has been recognized individually and as team member for his many innovative programs such as Road Watch, Seniors Take Charge, and Police and Alcohol Servers Seminar (PASS) that continue to help seniors, children, travellers, and drivers.

Sergeant Bob received the MTO individual Professional Road Safety Achievement award for the 2004 Drive Wise Program that is still being delivered to audiences across Ontario today.

“With the help of The McLennan Group, I look forward to developing and sharing practical safety tips for Canadians 50-plus.” says Sergeant Bob. “It’s simply the right thing to do.”

Among others, Sergeant Bob belongs to these respected crime prevention organizations:
• Crime Prevention Though Environmental Design - Ontario (CPTED-Ontario)
• Ontario Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (ONPEA)
• The Arson Prevention Program for Children (TAPP-C)
