DRPS Inspector Charlie Green was recently presented with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne. The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and Colonel A. G. Cameron, Chief Aide-de-Camp were in attendance to present the medal.
"It is a privilege for me to represent the men and women of the Durham Regional Police Service as an Aide-de-Camp to the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and receive the medal from His Honour, David C. Onley,” said Inspector Green.
In a letter from the Governor General David Johnston, Inspector Green was commended for his dedicated service to his peers, his community and to Canada. His tribute was celebrated on Saturday May 12, at the Lieutenant Governor’s Suite in Toronto.
Originally selected for his work as the Aide-de-Camp in 2006 with the Honourable James K. Bartleman, Inspector Green was later reappointed for a second term. He is the only member of DRPS to be honoured with this prestige appointment. Inspector Green also serves on the board of directors for the Police Memorial Foundation, has been credited for forming the Honor Guard at DRPS and is the in-house expert on major ceremonies and issues of protocol. Congratulations to Inspector Green on earning his medal.
