I never thought I would be in a situation where I needed to call the police, but last year in early April, I did. And the officer who responded to my call was Officer Rob Panek of the Guelph Police Service. I was feeling a lot of emotions that day and Rob was amazing, trying to keep me calm and reassured me that everything was going to be okay. It didn't feel like it at that time, but he was right. There were several phone calls and emails between Rob and I, dealing with my case and every time, he was attentive, detailed and professional. I truly think Rob deserves this award because without him helping me navigate through the court system over the last year, I am not sure if I would have made it. Thank you, Rob, for all you did for me and for being a voice of reason in a very stressful situation.
