Staff Sergeant Paul Gilpin of the London Police Service.
After 30 years with the London Police Service, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizen Paul Gilpin is easing into a well-earned retirement. Gilpin started with the London Police Force back in 1986 after graduating with a degree from the University of Guelph. He retires with the rank of Staff Sergeant.
Over the course of his career, Gilpin has worked in many different areas of the law enforcement, ranging from Patrol Operations, Recruiting and Training, the Criminal Investigation Division as a detective with the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Section and Community Services. He also worked as a Patrol Sergeant followed by Patrol Staff Sergeant and finally completing his tenure as Staff Sergeant in charge of the Court and Offenders section at the London Middlesex Court House.
A proud Métis, Gilpin often taught the younger officers about the rich culture and history of the Métis.
Gilpin enjoyed his career and feels fortunate that he worked in so many areas of law enforcement. His two daughters, Erynne and Emilee, are very excited to have their dad at home, safe and sound and working in the garden.
He looks forward to spending more time with his wife Michelle and riding on his motorcycle.
