I have a fairly nice collection of badges from  the UK and other parts of the world, but only recently started adding Canadian badges.  I have three in particular that I would like to know more about, any assistance is greatly appreciated.  Force history, dates of usage, and of course FMV.  Thanks

HI David, the Fort William badge is from the province of Ontario.  The towns of Fort William and Port Arthur amalgamated on January 1, 1970 to form the city of Thunder Bay. At that time, the two separate police departments amalgamated as well.  The link below has some information about Thunder Bay and the amalgamated towns of Fort William and Port Arthur.

The Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) is the police service . The force formed from the following Police Services.

The DRPS and York Regional Police are the only two police forces in the Greater Toronto Area with air support.

The DRPS was formed in 1974 through the amalgamation of a number of local police forces in the area, coinciding with the establishment of the Regional Municipality of Durham.

The Maple leaf badge is an older generic style

Municipal Police badge, could be from any where.

That badge was used by Toronto Police way back.  I have seen it at the Toronto Police Museum on helmets. Again, as Bob says, it could be a generic badge used at the time.

The first badge is from Oshawa Ontario police force. That Coat if Arms was used till the 1950s when they changed it to the one that is used today by the city.
