Dave makes a tremendous difference in our community with his calming nature and his empathetic ear. He renews the lost faith some have towards the force. He's fair and compassionate but above all, he has respect for those who are struggling. He is always willing to help and encourage people to do better.
On December 8, 2018, Ashley McArthur and a couple of other officers took the time to interact with me and my friends plus take a photo with us as well. This was during the Christmas Tree lighting event hosted by Mayor Cam Guthrie. Furthermore, Cst. McArthur has taken time out of her busy schedule to go out for ice cream with Marletta Pagliaroli. Marla has special needs and loves company so she went out of her way on numerous occasions to go out for ice cream with her. She deserves this award.
I don't know Constable Taraso personally, nor have I ever met him. I see his efforts on Twitter through Halton Regional Police channel. I see him in my community on a regular basis. I see him as a great ambassador for Halton and a genuinely caring individual who puts an effort above and beyond what he is expected to do. I would like to nominate Constable Marc Taraso as my uniformed hero. Thank you for all you do!

Several months ago, Caroline's neighbour knocked on her door at home when their son stopped breathing. They were in shock and couldn't get any words out and just handed her their limp son. Caroline went into action, assessed the boy, started chest compression's, and instructed the parents to dial 911. She saved him - he was breathing by the time the paramedics got there. If it hadn't been for Constable McLean, I don't know that he would have survived.
