Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield and Corrections and Policing Minister Christine Tell recently recognized 40 men and women for career achievements in the provincial correctional services.
“The contributions made by each of these dedicated people to help keep our communities safe, and to the rehabilitation of individuals in conflict with the law, are both admirable and important,” Tell said. “Congratulations to all the recipients – they are strong role models who deserve special recognition.”
Exemplary Service Medals commemorate at least 20 years of distinguished service with the Corrections Branch of Saskatchewan Justice. Eight previous medal recipients received Exemplary Service Bars, recognizing an additional decade of service.
From Yorkton two recipients were recognized, Tracy Gulka and Twila Mund.
Recipients of Corrections Exemplary Service Awards must have worked for at least 10 years in a correctional institution, parole or probation office, demonstrating good conduct and displaying excellence and devotion to duty.
The awards were established in 1984 to recognize the hazardous conditions faced by peace officers working with offenders.
