Fraser Valley (Cpl. Mike Rail UFVRD) – This week marks National Police Week – May 9 – 16, – a weeklong campaign to promote public awareness to encourage and foster connections between police and the communities we serve. The theme for 2021 is ‘Working together to keep our communities safe.’
There is no doubt that the pandemic has been challenging for many people in our community. We want you to know that the RCMP officers and support staff of the UFVRD remain dedicated to the safety of our communities. We are proud to serve you and continue to work together with our community partners throughout the Upper Fraser Valley to ensure public safety.
These efforts, selfless acts, and exceptional performances by our officers were acknowledged during the ‘Recognizing Excellence’ awards recently presented by Superintendent Bryon Massie M.O.M., Officer- in- Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD).
Recipients for these awards were recognized for a variety of actions including heroic rescues, saving the lives of people in emotional distress and the successful completion of complex and intense investigations which led to key arrests and criminal charges.
It remains my privilege to salute each recipient for their dedication, determination and courage to achieve extraordinary accomplishments in these unprecedented times, says Massie.
I applaud the community, family, friends, and co-workers who support our officers in their day-to-day commitment to the communities they serve.
The officers of the UFVRD look forward to the opportunity in the future to meet with members of the public to speak to people about the services provided to our community by police.
