Policing not only requires physical fitness, intelligence and patience but good ethical character and excellent interpersonal, problem-solving and conflict-resolution skills. This can be attributed to a proactive style of policing now known as community policing. Constable Coccimiglio has all these skills and more.
Not only is she strong and resilient, but she is a great role model for women. Women in policing often approach and solve problems from a different angle than their male co-workers and this is exactly what Constable Coccimiglio does. These differences are a vital part to providing great police service. Constable Coccimiglio is not only a valued community member, but a prominent female role model in the small town of Sault Ste Marie. We are in need of more strong women like her in today's society.
