Jan 29, 2010 12:26 ET

Durham Regional Police Detective Emmanuel Iheme is heading to Vancouver on January 31 to volunteer his services to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the 2010 Paralympic Games as a Station Manager for doping control.

Det. Iheme has been with DRP for the past 17 years and currently works in the Major Crime - Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit. With over 10 years experience as a Doping Control Officer with the Canadian Centre For Ethics In Sport (CCES), Det. Iheme is well regarded in international circles for his knowledge of anti-doping practices and his experience with sample collection involving elite athletes. It is the first time in the Games history a non-medical professional has been awarded this position.

“It’s an honour to be chosen as Station Manager and I look forward to ensuring fair competition for all athletes taking part,” said Det. Iheme, “Especially with Canada being the host of the Games.”

Educated in Rome and Vatican City, Det. Iheme is fluent in Italian and two African languages. He majored in International Conflict Resolution and Canadian Public Policy and Administration and has travelled throughout southern Europe.

DRP would like to wish all the athletes good luck and commend Det. Iheme for his contribution to the Games.
