Today's 12-month countdown event at 2200 Walkley Road was a resounding success! The MP Branch's 74th birthday was celebrated in style underneath sunny skies and warm temperatures.
Not only did a huge number of currently serving members of the MP family partake in the festivities, we were also privileged to welcome a significant number of retired members.
We'll have a more detailed report on the event tomorrow, complete with pictures. Until then, thanks for your support!
The RCAF Police begin deploying 34 sentry dogs and their MP handlers to RCAF fighter bases in France and Germany. The sentry dogs were used to ensure the safety and security of nuclear weapons assigned to the RCAF. The sentry dog program, which was firs t introduced in 1963, lasted until 1972, when Canada eliminated its limited nuclear capability.
10 June 1995:
The Master Access Control System (MACS) went on line at 22 Wing North Bay, thus eliminating the requirement for 4 or more MP to be assigned access control duties at any given time. This was the first time a fully computerized and automated access system was utilized by the CF.
