2019 Nominees

Patrick Swan

CST. Swan has been through the nightmares faced by many. Despite all he has dealt with, he uses his knowledge and compassion for fellow officers and first responders to better cope with PTSD. As a first responder diagnosed several years ago, I have found his efforts to keep helping others very inspiring.

Scott Dargie (2)

Officer Scott Dargie is kind, caring, compassionate and no matter who you are or where you come from he treats everybody equal. He doesn't ask you about your day because it's his job, he ask you because he truly cares about you. When you are talking to him he makes you feel like you're on top of the world, like you're a superstar. He truly loves and protects everyone that he serves in his community everyday, while on his beat. That is why I believe he should be nominated as officer of the year. Keep up the Fantastic work Officer Scott Dargie!

Andrew Jackson

Andrew has always had the desire to help people and goes above and beyond in his daily duties as a police Officer, he is very compassionate and motivated. He is the kind of cop that would change a flat tire or shoot hoops with kids. In the winter time he has been known to carry toys, scarves and hats in his trunk to be randomly handed out as needed, Andrew never just does his job, he consistently pours his heart and soul into his chosen field and personally shines from the benefits of just being a good person.

Daniel House

I believe Dan to be an outstanding police officer, full of knowledge and shares his passion for the lifestyle of police services. Not only has he been a great resource to gain some knowledge and information about it, the way he speaks of his job is absolutely amazing. Out of uniform, he’s a loving dad and a very friendly and approachable individual that will absolutely give you the time of day to talk to! I believe he deserves a nomination for sure!

Dave Drummond

My son was stabbed twice in September 2018. The responding officer was Dave Drummond #13115. Thanks to his quick thinking, my son is still alive. To me, this officer deserves to be nominated. I wrote a letter to the police chief to nominate Officer Drummond and thank him for saving my son...

Brent Burnside

I would like to nominate Brent Burnside of the Niagara Regional Police Service. The night I met Officer Burnside, I had a plan to commit suicide. Officer Burnside went above and beyond his job that night. He took the time to listen to what had upset me to get me to the point where I had wanted to commit suicide. The entire time, he appeared caring and showed compassion towards me.

Jeff McLean (3)

Jeff McLean with the Shelburne Police deserves this nomination as he goes beyond and above his job. I have known him since he was a rookie, and he has done so many good things for our community.

Loranne Thompson

I would like to see Loranne Thompson with Peterborough Police Services recognized for her many dedicated years of service as a competent, dedicated and compassionate 911 Operator. Her wonderful witty sense of humor, strong sense of integrity and dedication to excellence should be recognized. Although she is truly a front-line responder, her steady voice answering the emergency calls frequently goes unrecognized or acknowledged.
