Delta Police Hosts Annual Awards Ceremony
On May 4th, 2023, the Delta Police Department (DPD) held its annual Awards Ceremony, recognizing the many extraordinary and heroic acts of bravery, selflessness, and community service.
“The Ceremony was a testament to the outstanding achievements of our team and incredible community members who make our community the best of the best,” says Chief Constable Neil Dubord. “Commitment and dedication are two words we hear regularly. But I am fortunate to have the front-row seat in witnessing the commitment and dedication day in and day out. It was a privilege and honour to collectively recognize the award recipients for displaying humanity, patience, professionalism, and courage in the face of enormous danger and in some of the most trying circumstances. And I could not be prouder of the moments like the ones recognized at the Ceremony, but also the day-to-day work of the DPD team—our team, whether on the frontline or behind the scenes, who bring their absolute best every day and do their jobs with the utmost professionalism and character.”
Eight of our community members were recognized with DPD’s Outstanding Citizen Award for their life-saving efforts including performing CPR on a collapsed person and rescuing a drowning person.
Five DPD team members received Chief Commendations, the highest level of award presented by the DPD, for bravery, composure and exceptional application of training and de-escalation skills in dangerous situations.
Other team members were recognized with Deputy Chief and Superintendent Commendations, for several acts, including locating and performing life-saving first aid on a suicidal person and apprehending a person who fought and fled from police, and for exceptional performance, exemplary service, complex investigations, and meritorious or courageous acts.
