Since 2017, and the initiation of our wellness unit, Staff Sergeant Sandy Staniforth has been at the helm. In fact, until this year, she has been by herself. Sandy has saved my life and that of my families. She has made herself available to myself and every member of our service 24/7. Through education, and being empathetic to everyone’s needs, she puts service to others before herself and her family. I have never met a more caring, loving and supportive person in my life. I have never felt so strongly about a more deserving person to receive an award for her devotion to helping others. She exemplifies the meaning of being a police officer in Canada.
