Detective/Constable Kate Lang and Detective Tim Maw of the Durham Regional Police Service’s Sexual Assault Unit were recognized recently for their work in family violence and sexual assault at the annual ASIS Law Enforcement Appreciation Luncheon.
The Toronto Chapter of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) formally recognized the officers for their ongoing commitment to assisting victims of family violence and sexual assault throughout the region. The officers were involved in many high profile child and sexual abuse cases, including the Blackstock child abuse investigation.
ASIS is the largest international education organization for security professionals and each year its Toronto Chapter honours law enforcement officers across the GTA who have made significant contributions to public safety and security in their region.
Det/Cst. Kate Lang and Det. Tim Maw have worked closely with victims of sexual assault and family violence, and both officers have dedicated many hours to public education on family violence and abuse. Det. Maw recently completed his three-year tenure with Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit and is now Platoon Sergeant of the Oshawa Community Police Office.
The DRP congratulates both Det/Cst. Lang and Sgt. Maw on receiving this award and for their ongoing efforts to investigate sexual assaults and assist victims of violence.
