Meet the Project Sunset Team

Sergeant Anne McCoy, B.A. Ontario Provincial Police

OPP Special Projects Coordinator – North West Region

Anne McCoy is a 27 year veteran of the Ontario Provincial Police.  She is an advocate for  innovative policing strategies that support proven outcomes (behaviour change) versus outputs.  Her work has contributed towards a policing paradigm shift moving the OPP from more reactive policing practices towards sustainable strategies that address root causes of crime, social disorder and crisis.

Anne is a strategic thinker.  She projects a strengths-based approach to problem solving.  As the OPP Special Projects Coordinator of Project Sunset, her primary role is to oversee Project Management which includes a process and impact evaluation. Project Sunset is a ground breaking policing initiative with early success suggesting these specific proactive practices could prove beneficial for other police services and community partners.
