I've known Dave for over 16 years. He is not only a dedicated member of the Ottawa Police Service, but more so, he is a dedicated to his service outside the uniform as well. He not only serves people in a policing role, but he also goes the extra mile and genuinely cares for any and everybody. He sees beyond the colour of skin, how much money you make, or whether you're a criminal or his own family.
I have personally witnessed Dave treat an alcoholic male, who lost his car & license, lost his job, and on the brink of suicide like he was his own family. After shift, out of uniform, Dave sat with this male for over an hour and spoke to him in such a caring way, with great compassion. This is who David Stewart is, he is a caring and compassionate humanitarian, who would drop everything to help.
