Over 35 RCMP officers were honoured at the North District Awards Ceremony Thursday.
Stretching from Prince Rupert to 100 Mile House, officers were recognized for bravery and years of service.
Corporal Dave Tyreman became the district’s Media Information Officer in 2014 and was given the Bronze Clasp for 25 years on the force. Even after all these years, he says it’s still exciting to get up for work.
“There’s always something to learn every day and learn from everybody: from the general public, from superiors, from our junior members. It’s just that fact that every day we’re possibly learning something new, and the excitement of the job, being there for people to turn to if they need help,” he says.
Two Constables with Vanderhoof ties, Justine Ramsey, and James Potyok, were both recognized. They both faced different situations of a man with a knife.
