FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, June 14, 2013 12:35 pm

Ottawa Police host the 2013 Community/Police Awards Ceremony, next Tuesday

(Ottawa)–On Tuesday, June 18, Ottawa Police Chief Charles Bordeleau and the Ottawa Police Services Board will host the 2013 Community/Police Awards Ceremony. The awards being presented are as follows: the Community Service Award, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, Certificate of Valour, Certificate of Merit, Thomas G. Flanagan, S.C. Scholarship Certificate and the Operational Service Medal – South-West Asia.

We will also recognize a former member of the Ottawa Police Services Board and a member from the Ottawa Police Service Chaplaincy/Spiritual Program.

The Community Service Award will be presented to one member of the community. This award is presented to a member of the public or a member of the Ottawa Police Service who has made a significant contribution to the Service or the community, and demonstrated continued excellence in the performance of their duties and/or dedication to the Ottawa Police Service.

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal will be presented to two sworn members and one retired member of the Ottawa Police Service. This medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

The Certificate of Valour will be presented to seven members of the community and one civilian member of the Ottawa Police Service. This award is presented to a member of the public or a member of the Ottawa Police Service for an act of personal bravery or highly-meritorious service that is of assistance to the Ottawa Police Service.

The Certificate of Merit will be presented to twelve members of the community and one civilian member of the Ottawa Police Service. This award is presented to a member of the public or a member of the Ottawa Police Service for an act of unselfish assistance or demonstration of unique concern for the safety and well-being of another individual or the community.

The Thomas G. Flanagan, S.C. Scholarship Certificate will also be presented to a member of the community during the Ceremony. The Certificate is presented to racialized and Aboriginal women who have expressed an interest in a policing career. Since 1993, this award has been presented annually to women to continue their post-secondary education in a law-related field. Each year the winner is selected by a committee comprised of a representative of the Police Services Board, Executive Command, a community representative, and the Diversity and Race Relations Section. The selection is based on the resume outlining extensive volunteer work and an essay outlining knowledge of the Ottawa Police Service’s community policing philosophy. Applications are received from all the school boards in Ottawa, local colleges and universities, as well as community organizations.

The Operational Service Medal – South-West Asia will be presented to one sworn member. This medal was created to provide recognition to operations other than those conducted in the presence of an armed enemy and each requiring 30 days of accumulated service.

A former Ottawa Police Services Board member will be recognized for their years of dedication to the community and the Board.

Finally, a member of the Ottawa Police Service Chaplaincy/Spiritual Program will be recognized for their dedicated service to the members of the Ottawa Police Service.

Members of the media are welcome to attend.
