Members of the Prince Albert Police Service will be recognized tonight for going above and beyond the call of duty at the Annual Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police (SACP) Mess Dinner being held Wednesday April 25th. The dinner is held this year in Warman, Saskatchewan.
The Prince Albert Police Service is recognized for outstanding work on two separate files in 2017.
Three members, Constable Dwight Leblue, Constable Gerald Minielly and Constable Trevor Mitchell are receiving a Valor Award for entering into a burning apartment building to evacuate occupants during a fire that occurred on the 1400 Block 28 Street East on October 3, 2017.
Eight PAPS employees are receiving an Excellence in Performance Award for their efforts in relation to an Abduction investigation where the suspect was arrested and charged. Sgt. Ryan Levesque, Constable Tyson Morash, Constable Kim Issel, Constable Darren Androsoff, Constable Dan Logan, Constable Darcy Burns, and civilian members Curtis Schnitzler and Sharla Whitford were recipients of the award.
"I am very proud of both our civilian and sworn members who come to work and go above and beyond every day," said Acting Chief Jeff Rowden. "This was only two situations, among many others, where they have gone beyond the expectations of the job to serve the community."
The Awards committee received 28 separate and individual nominations — approving only 13.
The SACP Awards occur annually every April.
