MacIsaac named 2012 Comox Valley Mountie of the Year

Cpl. Ross MacIsaac has been named Mountie of the Year for 2012 in the Comox Valley.

Cpl. Ross MacIsaac has been named Mountie of the Year for 2012 in the Comox Valley.

The tradition began four years ago after a number of community leaders approached the local RCMP wishing to recognize outstanding achievement of law enforcement personnel working within the Comox Valley. This was to help instill, in all of us, a sense of pride in our law enforcement family.

In an effort to inspire and support the men and women of the RCMP working within the Comox Valley Detachment, a committee of community leaders, police peers and detachment management sought to recognize the efforts of one particular individual.

This individual would clearly demonstrate all the virtues that each of us aspire to in service to our community.

MacIsaac has been selected as the 2012 member who exalts excellence in policing through dedication and compassion for his work within the communities. This award recognizes his outstanding service and active participation in the protection of public order.

His display of courage and dedication, his bold and expertly prepared reports and his scene examinations aimed at capturing criminals and preventing criminal offences. For the extra time that he takes with victims of crime by reassuring them, all that possibly can be done, will be done to catch those persons responsible — most often the case through his own forensic expertise.

“The exemplary actions and dedication to duty displayed by Cpl. MacIsaac are extremely commendable and are not only a credit to himself, but are also in keeping with the highest traditions of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,” said Insp. Blair McDonald, officer in charge of the Comox Valley RCMP.
