RCMP OFFICERS from the North District, of which Terrace is a part of, were honoured with awards and long service medals at a ceremony June 11.

Sgt. Pamela Hart, of the local highway patrol, received the Commander`s Commendation for Outstanding Service, "awarded to an RCMP employee whose actions were innovative, unique and outside those which are expected from an experienced person performing the same task. Additionally, the consequences of their actions were deemed important or exceptional at the provincial or regional level."

Hart was commended for her exemplary performance and dedication as the file coordinator on Project Scape relative to the rescue of a kidnapped Canadian journalist on November 9, 2008, in Afghanistan.

Const. Mark Alexander and Corporal Brent Pearson of the North District Regional GIS at the Terrace Detachment were recognized for the investigational work provided on a Terrace shooting file that resulted in the apprehension of the suspect who was responsible for an armed robbery in Edmonton, Alberta.

Their dedication to the investigation and professionalism in dealing with the outside law enforcement agency to solve a violent crime, directly reflects the mission, vision and core values of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

A 20 Year Long Service Medal was presented to Sgt. Charles LeBlanc of Terrace.
