Chabine Tucker

I nominate Chabine Tucker for the police hero of the year award. He has gone above and beyond to teach, engage and connect within our city on a personal level.

He alongside constable Kevin Graham have put together an incredible team of volunteers who dedicate their time every week to play a game of basketball in schools, neighbourhoods and vulnerable areas. After a game of pickup basketball Chabine and Kevin will take their time to talk to the kids and answer any questions they have. They provide an outlet for kids to ask questions that they couldn’t ask their parents and offer help and advice. They’re great mentors in our city and the Ottawa police Hoopstars have reached thousands of people in our city.

I could not think of anyone more deserving of this award.
