2017 Nominees

Casey Vucko - 2017 Nominee (2)

I nominate my cousin Casey Vucko because he likes to help people and after seeing many videos of him back home helping out the kids in hospitals and bringing presents - also makes him my inspiration. It also guides me more in the foot steps for my career as a correctional officer after seeing everything he's done.

Lisa Kenopic - 2017 Nominee

She is a dedicated officer who has had a lot of positions over the years and truly works hard each and every day. She has a passion for her job and she demonstrates her love of protecting and serving the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie. I truly believe she deserves recognition for the work she does.

Cale Armstrong - 2017 Nominee

I would like to nominate my husband, Cale Armstrong, for the Police Hero award. Although he is our hero everyday, there are stories that most people do not know. A couple of my favourites are as follows.

One day Cale was on patrol and helped a new Mom in her apartment with some issues. After he dealt with the issues at hand, he noticed that the new baby's crib was not yet together. He quickly put it together so that Mom had a safe place to put her baby in. On his way out of the apartment, he noticed that the stairs were icy. With his own money he went to the store on his way home and bought salt. He put it on her stairs and never said a word. He was concerned she would fall with the baby. 

Cale Armstrong is not only a hero to his family, but to the Windsor community.
