Comox Valley RCMP recognizes auxiliary officers
The Comox Valley RCMP has recognized its auxiliary members for their volunteer work and community involvement.
In June, the Comox Valley RCMP held an awards ceremony to recognize the contributions auxiliary members make to public safety and policing in the Comox Valley, Insp. Tom Gray noted in his monthly policing report to Courtenay council.
Auxiliary Consts. Amron Russell, Rick Gaiga, Dave Mellin and Bill Borland were honoured with the Ultimate Volunteer award for each contributing more than 500 hours of volunteer work to the program in 2010.
Gray also highlighted the community spirit shown by Auxiliary constables when they were involved in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraiser for cancer research last month.
