Hope RCMP officer honoured

Staff Sgt. Suki Manj wins award for service to the community

Hope RCMP Staff Sgt. Suki Manj has been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his meritorious service and contributions to the community.

The medal was created as a visible and tangible way to recognize outstanding Canadians from all walks of life, while celebrating the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada.

“I don’t know who nominated me or what the circumstances were, but it’s a nice feeling to know that your peers or someone you work with has thought enough of what you’ve done to nominate you,” said Manj.

“I joined the policing profession to help people and I think I’ve always tried to do what’s best for everyone. On the same token, a lot of the officers deserve something because all of them do a great job, whether it’s behind the scenes or out on the front lines.”

A total of 735 medals will be presented to British Columbians during a ceremony this fall.
