The Toronto Police Services Board congratulates outgoing Toronto Police Association (TPA) President Mike McCormack on his retirement and thanks him for his many years of dedicated service and his commitment to policing in the City of Toronto. A powerful force in policing, Mike McCormack has been on the front lines for 35 years, 24 years as a police officer, and President of the TPA for the past 11.
Mike McCormack has been an exceptional leader for the TPA, with his strong and effective communication skills, and a genuine and demonstrated pride in the Service Members he represents. For over a decade, Mike has focused on building strong relationships in the community, grounded in an understanding that policing must be viewed in a larger context, where we address the root causes of crime, alongside providing law enforcement.
Notably during his tenure, Mike championed improvements to health benefits and mental health supports during labour negotiations; led the development of the shift schedule pilot project; and amplified the concerns of Members regarding police staffing and gun violence.
The Board wishes Mike all the best in the years ahead and thanks him for his outstanding contribution to policing in this city. We look forward to working with Brian Callanan, who will serve as Acting President until the TPA members elect a new President.
