Kimberly Cadarette

I would like to nominate Officer Kimberly Cadarette, for her amazing contribution to the community. Not only is she an inspiration for others, but her overall personality is so positive when dealing with the public. She brings a smile on, and off duty from her job a s a Police Officer at Peel Region Police Department. Officer Cadarette is a dedicated individual who is constantly helping out in the community, as she put a lot of he spare time towards helping in community events. In the past several years she helped out with the Ride for Heart foundation,and with Big Brothers, Big Sisters. In Feb/2015 her heart went into helping the homeless, and she would use her own funds in making lunch bags for them. To now she inspired others to help ,and we are making up to 150 lunches monthly. This is because this officer has the ability to bring others to help in the community, and make a difference. I want to see that her efforts to make a change in our community is not gone unrecognized, as she what we as a community need to see in more officers. An officer who cares, and will make that extra effort to help out in the community. Thank you Officer Cadarette for being the caring officer that you are.
