A retired, veteran Police Officer, Bob served thirty-eight years between the Toronto Police Service and the Durham Regional Police Service.
Bob was the lead officer in the Hit and Run Squad and the first Reconstructionist for the Durham Service where fatalities & serious collisions were part of his investigation responsibilities. In 1993 Bob and John decided that more needed to be done to educate the public to the horrors of fatalities. The officers constructed a model town utilizing 41,000 sq. feet of display space, complete with roads and working traffic lights to demonstrate what emergency services do upon arriving at collision sites. Over 35000 people came to the three day event, proving that the public was interested in how to prevent the deaths on our roads. Bob & John agreed that education was paramount in prevention of fatalities, and education in conjunction with law enforcement can reduce collisions.
John Hinds is a retired Sgt. and 30-year veteran officer in the Greater Toronto Area.
A major part of John's career has been dealing with investigation of fatal motor vehicle collisions, as a level 4 Reconstructionist. In more than 30-years policing, John investigated countless fatalities that happened on streets, parking lots, fields and parks. John met Bob in 1993 and together they worked to organize the first Accident Awareness event. This large-scale event, attracting more than 35,000 visitors, was constructed to educate the public about the horrors of motor vehicle collisions. The effectiveness of Accident Awareness was immediately recognized. John and Bob agreed that education, in concert with law enforcement, was a proactive approach to preventing traffic mishaps. John and Bob teamed up and developed presentations designed for high schools throughout Durham Region, later reaching High Schools and Elementary Schools all across Ontario.
