Officer in Charge Awards recognize outstanding contributions

Every year, the Surrey RCMP recognizes police officers, employees, and citizens who have made outstanding contributions to public safety with the Officer in Charge Awards.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 awards were modified from one large event, usually held in June, to many individual and small group presentations held over the last six months. Recipients were honoured for a variety of achievements including courageous actions, investigational excellence, and innovative problem-solving.

These awards recognize efforts that go above and beyond the normal call of duty, says Assistant Commissioner Brian Edwards, Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge. I am very proud that we have so many deserving officers, municipal employees and citizens who have made exceptional contributions to public safety in Surrey.

In total, 70 awards were presented, recognizing 220 people, including:

Many others were recognized for their work in comprehensive drug trafficking, firearms possession, and sexual assault investigations; life saving measures related to drugs and mental health calls; operational tools and techniques developed to enhance service delivery; and community outreach initiatives that provided continued support to victims and clients.

Congratulations to all of the deserving award recipients.
