Stratford Police Sgt. James Jardine has been a wonderful volunteer with various groups. Through work, he has volunteered his time off-duty at family fishing day (Canadian Tire Kids and Cops), our local food and toy drives, as well as the Ride for Epilepsy. He also sat on board of directors for Victim Services Bruce Grey Perth for a couple years, and currently (for 4 years now) still on Board of Directors at a local church. On top of his volunteering, he is also a neighbourhood helper. James can often be found snow blowing many of the lanes through the neighbourhood, and helping mow lawns in the warmer weather.
Most recently, James was off-duty when he was with his family and they came across a vehicle in the ditch on the 403. He assisted in helping to save a man's life with CPR that day. A while back, my daughter noticed someone in need of help. As she called for help, I got ahold of James as he was nearby and he quickly went to offer his assistance to the person in distress. He makes not only his family proud, but anyone who knows him!
