The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police
is proud to present
Staff Sergeant Ian Mitchell
of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Life Time Achievement Award
Staff Sergeant Mitchell has given his heart and soul to the RCMP and to the people of Saskatchewan for over 30 years, particularly in the area of road safety. He has continually conducted himself in a manner that is recognized by his peers as being far and above what duty calls for and always sets the bar for performance very high.
His early assessments make reference to his high level of professionalism, dedication, common sense, enthusiasm and strong work ethic. His strong leadership skills were evident when he was promoted in 1998 and he personally led the entire Saskatoon Traffic Services unit in charges for impaired driving, recorded a high number of seat belt charges, had the second highest number of enforcement contacts for the whole unit, and did all this while handling the unit’s administrative responsibilities and supervising nine constables.
Through the efforts of Staff Sergeant Mitchell, the F Division Traffic Services Program has entrenched Road Safety Vision 2010 and Team Service Delivery principles, which is providing members with an identity, a purpose and a set of goals.
Since being promoted in September of 2006 to the Traffic Operations NCO / Senior Collision Analyst, Staff Sergeant Mitchell continues to lead and provide mentorship to six unit commanders and the Collision Analyst Program. He shares his vast knowledge and experience by making road safety presentations, teaching the RSV 2010 / Team Service Delivery courses, and facilitating Level III Collision Analyst / Level IV Reconstructionist training.
