Staff Sergeant Steve Simone - London Police Service

Steve Simone, from the London Ontario sexual assault unit, is my hero! I’ve never had a hero before other than my father. Steve is the kindest, most compassionate, understanding, empathetic person I know. I came to Steve with a sexual assault case. He took on my case with so much determination. The moment we spoke, I was believed. Steve worked so hard on my case. We brought it to court. We are waiting for the verdict now. Steve was incredibly amazing in court. He stood by me the entire time. I felt safe and protected. I felt love and respect. He never left my side. He blocked my assailant from seeing me until I stepped on the stand. He is an amazing and truly kind man. I feel so connected to him. He is family now. He helped save my life. He found me therapy as I was slipping through the cracks. He went out of his way to help me find inner peace. He helped me survive what was so very traumatic for me. I will never forget him. I am so impressed. He is so caring. I can’t say enough about him. Steve Simone is my HERO! He deserves to be recognized for his very difficult job. For being so approachable and kind. He is also very humble. I want Steve to know how much he is appreciated. I don’t know how to thank him enough for all he’s done. He made such a difference in my life. I am still here walking on this earth because of him. I was in such a dark place before we met. I was ready to no longer go on. Now I’m happy to be alive. Steve made this happen. I give him 100% credit for my life. Please consider Steve for the award. He is the most deserving officer. If I had my way we would be friends for life. I’m so attached to him now. Thank you for everything Steve Simone. I’ll never be able to show you how much you mean to me and my family. Steve helped me move from victim to survivor. He helped me get the courage to proceed with my case. I truly care and love him as family. Steve Simone is my HERO, forever and always! Thank you
