The Howling Wolf

Just as our wolf logo symbolizes the leadership, loyalty, strength of character and sense of family that is displayed by emergency responders, The Howling Wolf serves as the voice of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. A wolf’s howl attracts other members of the pack, invites communication and creates a strong bond between pack members. We hope this blog will have the same impact on emergency responders, workplace safety professionals and traffic safety advocates, bringing us all together in the same pack and providing valuable information about workplace safety issues affecting first responders.

Check in frequently for updates on JPMF events and initiatives, interesting research and to add your own howl to our pack.

Seeking hotel partners for John Petropoulos Leadership Award

We are currently seeking sponsors for the John Petropoulos Leadership Award.

The award – a collaboration between the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF) and the Calgary Police Service (CPS) – is given on an annual basis to a member from District 6, where Const. John Petropoulos worked as a police officer, as well as an officer from District 1.

It recognizes constables who display those attributes that John himself demonstrated – integrity, dedication to police work, commitment to excellence, courage and honour. The award includes a cash prize and a stay at a luxury hotel. The prize offers an opportunity for the award recipients to enjoy a getaway with loved ones and hopefully leave the stresses of police work behind for a few days. 

JP_LeaderAward“The hotel stay is an important aspect of the award because it gives the winners a chance to leave town, relax, and recharge,” said JPMF Managing Director Ian Wilson.

“Policing can be mentally, physically and emotionally taxing work and this award gives constables an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones.”

“We sincerely appreciate the support of our sponsors and their appreciation of first responders,” added Wilson.

If you would like to support the John Petropoulos Leadership Award, you can donate online. Alternatively, you can mail a cheque, gift certificates or other in-kind donation to us at #347, 440 – 10816 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary, AB, T2J 5N8.

The JPMF is a registered Canadian charity and charitable tax receipts are available.
