Dispatcher Mylène Lacroix

Award: On-Duty Difference Maker - Civilian Police Service Employee
Service: Cornwall Police
Year: 2019

As if she didn’t have enough going on already between her charitable efforts and her work as a 911 dispatcher, Mylène has begun serving her fellow Police Association membership by getting elected as Treasurer of the Cornwall Police Association Board. Mylène consistently completes the kindest of deeds for her community, such as knitting warm clothing and donating to the less fortunate, and abroad with mission trips to Uganda with her initiative called “Project Under Things”...


...Mylène made her first mission trip to Uganda early in 2018 where she submerged herself in the African community. She continued to advocate for this mission by continuing to raise awareness in the Cornwall community about the needs of this amazing population upon her return. “Project Under Things” included collecting hundreds of underpants, socks, clothing and funds to purchase much needed items for the children of Uganda. She returned to Uganda in January 2019 with more donations from Project Under Things, continuing to make a great difference in the lives of the recipients.
