 is proud to present

CONSTABLE RUSSELL SCOTT CLARK
of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Wadena Detachment

With the

EXCELLENCE IN POLICING SERVICES AWARD
Community Policing

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.
