The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
is proud to present
Constable Dale Crain
of the Moose Jaw Police Service
EXCELLENCE IN POLICING SERVICES AWARD
Constable Dale Crain has served in Patrol since starting his policing career in 2006.
During the evening of August 24, 2011, Constable Crain responded to a request to locate a young man who had left the Union Hospital Emergency Room threatening suicide. Constable Crain located the male clinging to a wire cable, 30 meters above the rail yards on the 4th Avenue Bridge.
Constable Crain knew the male and was able to establish a rapport as he calmly approached him. Once close enough, Constable Crain put himself at risk in order to reach out over the railing to grab the man's arm to prevent him from falling to the rail yard below. He held onto him until two other police officers arrived to help lift the male over the railing and back to the safety of the bridge.
Constable Crain's quick response, in the face of danger to himself, most certainly prevented serious injury, if not death, to this emotionally disturbed man.
The Saskatchewan Chiefs of Police is proud to recognize Constable Dale Crain's distinguished act of heroism with the Valor Award.
President, Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
