I am nominating Sgt. Amy Birtch for this award because of the difference she makes in the lives of the vulnerable women that she works with. Amy creates a safe space for the communities most vulnerable to feel like they can ask her for help which is incredibly important for those at risk. I have had the honour of working with Amy through our program that partners with London Police (PAR) and all of the women that she works with trust and respect her, along with all of us staff. Amy’s ability to connect with the communities most vulnerable is life changing and life saving and I couldn’t imagine a better officer to receive this award.
