Essex County OPP was awarded as the Top Zone 6 fundraiser at this past weekend’s annual Workshop and Awards Ceremony for Special Olympics held in Mississauga.

This is the 30th year for the Torch Run in Canada and the first time that Essex County OPP has won this prestigious award under the leadership of Provincial Constable Jim Chauvin, a member of Essex County OPP and co-coordinator for the Law Enforcement Torch Run.

A well-known local OPP member, Provincial Constable Silvano Bertoni of the Kingsville Detachment along with Kellie Walker of the Ministry of Correctional Services, were co-winners of the Rising Flame Award for their significant support to the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
