Sergeant Glenn Courneyea of the DRP Traffic Services Branch was named Officer of the Year at MADD Durham’s Annual Meet and Greet event last night in Oshawa.
MADD Durham works to stop impaired driving in our region and to support the victims of this violent crime. Each year the organization recognizes a Durham officer for outstanding work in eradicating impaired driving.
Sgt. Courneyea was honoured for not only working toward getting drivers impaired by alcohol off the road, but also those impaired by drugs. Sgt. Courneyea is a member of the RIDE team and DRP’s only Drug Recognition Expert.
His peers nominated him for his involvement in numerous impaired driving initiatives throughout the year. Sgt. Courneyea thanked his fellow officers and nominees for the honour and for their tireless efforts in 2006.
Also nominated for dedicated work in the area of impaired driving were Constables James Kerr, Phil Steward and Todd Gribbons.
Congratulations to Sgt. Courneyea and all the nominees for their ongoing efforts to protect our communities from impaired drivers.
