Constable Jean-Pierre Latour, from Tasiujaq, received on April 8 the NPS Recognition at Work program award for 2020 from the NPS Chief Jean-Pierre Larose in Kuujjuaq.
The Recognition at Work program for police officers is designed to recognize and value individuals who have distinguished themselves in one or more of the following categories:
_ Professional contribution
_ Quality of service
_ Professional conscience
_ Community involvement
This year was the third time such an award was given by Nunavik police. NPS staff could nominate any NPS police officer for the award.
It is a great appreciation of the dedication and commitment for going above and beyond serving the population of Nunavik.
