The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
is proud to present
Inspector Jerome Engele
of the Saskatoon Police Service
Public Education Award
Inspector Jerome Engele has been a member of the Saskatoon Police Service since 1980. He has served in Patrol and the Integrated Drug Unit. Throughout his career he has worked interactively with community organizations to achieve policing goals.
Inspector Engele developed the Drug Awareness and Healthy Lifestyle Day to expand the educational contents of the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association “Know the Score” program to a wider youth audience. In 2010, the Drug Awareness and Healthy Lifestyle Days were extended to two days and also targeted interactive educational displays intended for Grade 7 level students. The two days were geared towards youth to make them more aware of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle free of alcohol and drugs. Students from 42 schools and 120 chaperons were able to attend the event. This program has developed into a collaborative approach of community organizations and a true group effort towards educating our youth about drugs and alcohol.
Taking the “Know the Score” program’s goals of living a healthy lifestyle beyond educating young hockey players and expanding to a wider youth audience is truly inspirational.
The Saskatchewan Chiefs of Police is proud to recognize Inspector Jerome Engele’s service with the Public Education Award.
