Commentaires : The Ontario Provincial Police was formed by Order-In-Council on October 13, 1909. By 1939, the provincial police force had matured to the point that the Attorney General selected the first man trained within the ranks, William Holebrook Stringer. What career achievements earned this officer the top position in the OPP? As commissioner what did he achieve?Born in Rathmines, Dublin Ireland in 1886, William Stringer immigrated to Huron County and received his education at Goderich. At age 23, Stringer briefly served with the Toronto Police Department before joining the Ontario Provincial Police a year after its formation. Within a few weeks of his posting to Fort William, Stringer investigated his first murder. After 5 years in the north, the young officer transferred to Sarnia where he again served with distinction. Promoted to the rank of Inspector after 10 years on the force, Stringer joined the Criminal Investigation Branch, which dealt with the most important cases in the Province.One of those cases occurred after the shooting of Sergeant John Urquhart who was killed in the line of duty. Stringer personally directed one of the OPP's largest manhunts for Leo Rogers. Rogers, on parole from Kingston Penitentiary escaped from courthouse in North Bay where he was being arraigned for carrying concealed weapons. Inspector Stringer led the pursuit for Leo Rogers who was eventually shot and killed while trying to evade capture.Stringer distinguished himself as an investigator during two murder cases where the both homicides were disguised as accidents. In recognition of his countrywide reputation as a meticulous investigator, Stringer was selected as chief inspector of the Criminal Investigation Branch on February 12, 1932. Just seven years later, William Stringer was appointed Commissioner of the OPP.
