Award: Community Role Model
Service: Chatham-Kent Police
Cst. Amy Finn has been with the Chatham-Kent police service for the past 30 years, and was the first female officer ever hired by the force. She received numerous nominations from people throughout the Chatham-Kent community praising her efforts to make the town a better place to live. She is a tireless volunteer for local initiatives such as soup kitchens, Goodfellows’ No Child Without Christmas drive, Cops for Cancer (for which she shaved her head), and so much more. She also takes a passion for instilling positive life values in the youth of Chatham-Kent, and many nominations credited Amy's dedication to helping them through challenging times as the reason they've become the upstanding people they are today. It is clear the people of Chatham-Kent are very proud to call Amy an active member of their community, both on and off duty. Though Constable Finn is soon retiring from service, her significant impact on the community will very much continue.
