The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
is proud to present
CONSTABLE RUSSELL SCOTT CLARK
of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Wadena Detachment
EXCELLENCE IN POLICING SERVICES AWARD
Constable Russell Clark has demonstrated excellence in his policing duties by the unique method in which he addressed the problem of teenage drivers and stunting within the village of Quill Lake. As previous efforts to address this problem had met with little success, Constable Clark implemented a proactive strategy to solve this issue.
Constable Clark met with members of the youth population to discuss the stunting
issue in a non-confrontational manner. He then began to build relationships
with the youth by assisting in the coaching of the football team, renewing
the Students Against Drunk Driving committee, and arranging community events
such as a hockey game between the RCMP and a local midget hockey team. As a
four year member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Constable Russell Clark
has already made a considerable impact within
the community of Quill Lake and has furthered mutual respect
between the police within that detachment and the community at large.
The work and dedication of Constable Clark has been recognized by peers, supervisors and the community alike. The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police would like to commend Constable Clark for his work within the community of Quill Lake by awarding him with the Excellence in Policing Services Award for 2003 in the category of Community Policing.
