The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
is proud to present
CONSTABLE ROBERT SHAWN KING
of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
EXCELLENCE IN POLICING SERVICES AWARD
Constable Robert Shawn King has demonstrated excellence in his commitment to his community by initiating discussions with Canadian Forces which led to the establishment of a Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadron in his community of Kindersley in September 2004. Constable King recognized a need for such a program for youth to participate in a structured and disciplined environment, to explore their talents, develop good citizenship, physical fitness, self-confidence and self-respect. Constable King’s commitment continued as he volunteered to be the squadron’s Commanding Officer from its inception until 2006.
Constable King’s contribution to his community is also reflected in the work he does as a member of Branch #57 of the Royal Canadian Legion where he has assumed an active role in all veterans’ activities including spearheading the naming of a street within the Town of Kindersley to Veteran’s Lane.
Constable King has also included his own family in his work in the community through their participation in the first running of Families and Schools Together (FAST) which is a program designed to bring families at risk together with more stable and supportive families.
Constable King’s community leadership is recognized and greatly appreciated by the residents in his community and the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police would like to commend Constable King for his work in the community of Kindersley by awarding him with the Excellence in Policing Services Award for 2006 in the category of Leadership.
