2019 Nominees

Shannon Parks (2)

I nominate my son, Brantford Police officer Shannon Parks. For as long as I can remember, Shannon wanted to be a officer. He loves his job helping others, but of course, as his mother I always worry when he leaves for work. Though it is a fulfilling job, it can also be a dangerous one. I think all officers should receive a award for their outstanding work, thank you.

Kimberly Cadarette (5)

I would like to nominate Officer Cadarette for all her hard work she does in our community. Her overall personality is positive, she is easy to approach, and easy to talk to as well. She is an officer who gives a lot of her time to the community. She works hard with helping out with the Special Olympics, and even helped sponsor one of the special needs children for the event.

Kevin Dahl

Often enough in Guelph, you can constantly see Constable Kevin Dahl footing the downtown streets and reaching out to the community. Kevin is rarely seen without offering a pleasant hello and an ear to ear smile on his face. He’s definitely and inspiration to many who seek a future in policing. Thanks for all of your hard work Kevin!

Kimberly Cadarette (4)

I would like to nominate my niece Cst. Kimberly Cadarette. In 2014, Kimberly hosted a car wash, which raised almost $15,000 for the Special Olympics. In 2015, while working as an officer at St. Martins Secondary School, she assisted with a fundraising event for a family. The event that would have normally raised approx $1,000, but with the help of Kimberly, they raised almost $10,000 which allowed the family to purchase a prostate leg and allowed the daughter to finish college.
