Greg Streng

I’d like to second the nomination for Greg Streng from the Carleton Place OPP. In 2015, I left my husband and things turned bad very quickly. The situation became alarmingly abusive and my girls and I had way too many visits from police. Greg was the first responder the night it fell apart. He believed me, let me cry and made sure my daughters and I were safe. Not all police contact went that well over the next few months. Knowing someone believed you and took your concerns seriously made it so much easier to escape the abusive relationship. He restored my faith in the police, he checked in on our safety and, thanks to him, my children and I stayed safe. To my girls and I, he will always be our hero.
