Special Release, October 25th, 2014:
This weekend the Manitoba Citizens On Patrol Program (COPP) is conducting its annual conference in Winnipeg. This evening, Brandon Police Service Staff Sergeant Larry Yanick will be honoured by the program with a Lifetime Membership Award.
The award is granted by the COPP Provincial Advisory Committee to an individual who has significantly championed and supported the program, but is not a COPP member. Staff Sgt. Yanick, through his representation of the Brandon Police Service on the Provincial Advisory Committee for 5 years, along with his role as Liaison Officer with the local Brandon COPP, not only supported the program in his community, but across the province. His enthusiasm for COPP and its volunteers has had a significant impact, and stands as a wonderful example of how the program flourishes when a respectful and caring relationship exists between the police and community members. Larry most definitely deserves this award, and the committee is honoured to present it on behalf of all COPP members in Manitoba.
The Police Service is proud to extend congratulations to Staff Sergeant Yanick on receiving this prestigious award.
