  • Members of Alexa’s Team, which recognizes the exemplary efforts of B.C. police officers who have made the reduction of impaired driving a priority, were recognized at a May 9 ceremony at the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster.

Half a dozen Sea to Sky RCMP officers were recognized last week for their work over the past year removing impaired drivers from local roads.

Alexa’s Team, named in honour of four-year-old Alexa Renee Middelaer, who died in 2008 after being struck by a drunk driver, recognizes the exemplary efforts of B.C. police officers who have made the reduction of impaired driving a priority.

Eligible officers are those who removed 12 or more impaired drivers through a criminal charge investigation or the immediate roadside prohibition administrative process.

“I continue to be extremely pleased with the effort and dedication of my officers to remove impaired drivers from the road,” said Staff Sgt. Paul Hayes in an email. “I have been a supporter of the Alexa’s Team awards since they began and I urge my members to become part of the team every year.”

The members were recognized at a May 9 ceremony at the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster.
