Victoria BC – Yesterday, VicPD’s Cst. Brendon LeBlanc was awarded the 2013 Traffic Law Enforcement Officer of the Year by the British Columbia Association of Chiefs of Police Traffic Safety Committee for his outstanding work combatting impaired and prohibited driving.
Cst. LeBlanc has been instrumental in tracking and enforcing the laws around prohibited driving, and, most notably, has arrested 257 impaired drivers in the last two and a half years on the roads of the Capital Region.
“I am so honoured that one of our officers received this award,” said VicPD Chief Constable Frank Elsner. “Brendon’s work combatting impaired and prohibited drivers has, without a doubt, saved lives and heartache for families across our region. I could not be more proud of his work.”
The provincial award is open to any RCMP or municipal officer in B.C. and each year an outstanding traffic officer is given this honour.
