“For over 20 years, Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers has taken pride in honouring officers in our province that go above and beyond the call of duty to make our communities and province a better place to call home. Again this year, the awards program represents all the enforcement entities in the province, police and peace officers and we are delighted to recognize these outstanding enforcement officers,” said Mark Brown, Chair of NL Crime Stoppers.
Nominations for the 2015 awards were accepted from the general public, provincial organizations as well as any provincial police or peace officer. This year, the number of nominations more than doubled. “We received nominations from across the province, representing a candidate pool of diverse demographic representation, geography, gender, and experience,” said Brown.  “We are extremely pleased with the volume and calibre of the nominations received this year, and we thank everyone who took the time to nominate a deserving officer.”
