TORONTO — After 30 years of service to the Ontario Provincial Police, Cam Woolley has retired from the force and is embarking on a new career in broadcasting, joining Toronto’s breaking news channel CP24.
Woolley, a media veteran in his own right, puts his on-camera experience to work today as CP24’s new Traffic and Safety Specialist, CP24 reported.
"It’s hard to believe I’ve found a second career that lets me talk even more than I do right now," said Woolley. "There are dozens of commuting stories that break on Toronto’s roads every day, and I can’t wait to join CP24 and be on the other side of the microphone, helping folks get to and from home more safely."
Woolley has received recognition from numerous organizations for his role in bringing traffic safety issues into the media spotlight, promoting public awareness and discussion on everything from bad drivers on a holiday weekend, street racing, highway design problems, fatigue, seat belts and drunk driving. He has also been the OPP’s lead investigator on many high-profile, fatal motor vehicle collisions involving unsafe rigs and hit-and-runs.
A passionate safety advocate, Cam Woolley spoke to todaystrucking.com about the proven benefits of speed limiters at Truck World 2008, Canada’s national truck show, owned by Today’s Trucking publisher Newcom Business Media.
Woolley has escorted world leaders, the Pope and royalty safely along Provincial highways, and has been decorated for bravery for his actions in apprehending an escaping bank thief.
