I really enjoyed my last Citizens on Patrol meeting last night. The mayor of Portage was present as well as the Inspector heading the Portage detachment of the RCMP.
I was presented with a document from Manitoba Public Insurance thanking me for my 11 years service as statistion as well as a plaque from the local group thanking me for my contribution to the group over the years.
The Inspector informed the group that he is going to Afganistan for 9 months with NATO to act as senior police trainer for the Afgan police. I think thats quiet an honor for him and will certainly help his career. At the mayor's request when he is finished his duties there he will be returning to Portage.
