Senior Director, Support Services Division (Retired), London Police Service

Eldon Amoroso served with the London Police Service from 1980 to 2011, when he retired. He is currently a consultant with his own company, Birch Forest Projects Inc. He retired from the London Police Service as the Senior Director, Support Services Division. This diverse division included everything from the 911 Centre, to Technology, to the Cell Block, to the liaison with the Courts and Crown (Prosecutors).

From 2003 onward, Eldon was heavily involved in the development of the Canadian Police Information Portal, which allows access to virtually all police investigative reports across Canada. This vital system is now housed and supported nationally by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Eldon is a past Co-Chair of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Information and Communications Technology Committee, which is at the forefront of Interoperability in Canada. He is still an active member of that committee, as well as the IACP Computer Crime and Digital Evidence Committee. He co-chaired the oneVoice Committee for the City of London, which brought city and emergency services onto the City radio system. The radio system was upgraded to the P25 standard in the process. As well, he was fully involved in designing the Electronic Disclosure system that was implemented in London.

Eldon was appointed as an Officer of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces in May of 2008, which is a law enforcement award from the Governor General of Canada. In August of 2012 the Office of the Governor General of Canada awarded Eldon the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for "outstanding service to Canada".
