A lot can change in 34 years. In 1975 Toronto had an estimated population of almost three million people. Years later the population exceeded over 5 million. Within that time Bruce Cottrell watched the city he worked for as an officer of the Toronto Police Services grow and change. From walking the streets as a beat cop, to running a station filled with young new officers, Bruce experienced the ups and downs the city had to offer. I sat down to talk with Bruce about what it was like to be a 20 year old inexperienced police officer chasing wolves off the streets of Toronto to an experienced veteran worried about the next generation of officers charged with the task of serving and protecting an ever growing city.
