I have seen Officer McAdam go above and beyond her duties on numerous occasions. The compassion and empathy she shows people having mental health issues is unlike any other officer I have ever met. While dealing with youth she is patient, understanding and listens without judgement. She can also be authoritative and take control of a chaotic scene. Our community is a better place with her protecting it. She is absolutely amazing at her job and I can’t imagine anyone more deserving of this award.
