I would like to nominate Smiths Falls Police Constable Aaron Tompkins for the 2022 Police Services Hero of the Year Award. Constable Tompkins is our Community Service Officer. He works alongside many resources to best support the people in our town. Crimestoppers, Victim Services, mental health and addiction services, food bank, schools, shelters and the health unit to name a few. Constable Tompkins has maintained his presence, involvement and support of our community throughout the pandemic and does regular interviews with our local media. He has been a reliable resource and a trusting voice. Constable Tompkins is very involved with our Special Olympics athletes. He is a swimming coach for our athletes as well, and plans activities and events with them. Our Smiths Falls Police Department focuses on “Community First”. We are so fortunate to have our own town police department.
